Support Request Priority

Priority is automatically calculated based on the priority matrix (shown below), using customer provided inputs (Impact and Urgency). Other considerations may also affect the assigned priority, including size, scope, complexity and resources required for the resolution to be carried out.

Priority Matrix

Snare support requests have 5 levels of priority, as defined below:

  • P1 - Highest : Critical issue that needs to be fixed immediately

  • P2 - High : Issue needs to be fixed with high urgency

  • P3 - Medium : There is an issue but service is still running

  • P4 - Low : Minor issue or easily worked around

  • P5 - Lowest : Trivial issue with little or no impact on progress

Priority is automatically calculated based on the following priority matrix:

Impact
