Viewing and updating support tickets

You can view your support tickets, collaborate with colleagues on tickets, and respond to GitHub Support using the GitHub Support portal.

About ticket management

If you have previously contacted GitHub Enterprise Support through the deprecated GitHub Enterprise Support portal, you should use the GitHub Support portal to open new tickets but you can still view your past tickets at https://enterprise.githubsupport.com.

You can use the GitHub Support Portal to view current and past support tickets and respond to GitHub Support.

To open, view, and comment on support tickets associated with an enterprise account or organization owned by an enterprise account, you must have support entitlements for the account. Enterprise owners and billing managers automatically have a support entitlement, and enterprise owners can add support entitlements to enterprise members. For more information, see "Managing support entitlements for your enterprise."

For more information about verifying a domain, see "Verifying or approving a domain for your enterprise" and "Verifying or approving a domain for your organization."
