Scope of support

If your support request is outside of the scope of what our team can help you with, we may recommend next steps to resolve your issue outside of GitHub Support. Your support request is possibly out of GitHub Support's scope if the request is primarily about:

  • Third party integrations, such as Jira
  • Enterprise Cloud Importer (available only with expert-led migrations)
  • CI/CD, such as Jenkins
  • Writing scripts
  • Configuration of external authentication systems, such as SAML identity providers
  • Open source projects
  • Writing or debugging new queries for CodeQL
  • Cloud provider configurations, such as virtual network setup, custom firewall, or proxy rules.
  • Container orchestration, such as Kubernetes setup, networking, etc.
  • Detailed assistance with workflows and data management
  • Beta features. Support for beta features is out of GitHub Support's scope. For support with beta features, you can contact your account manager on GitHub's Sales team.

For detailed assistance with workflows and data management, consult GitHub Expert Services, which offer specialized support to help you optimize your use of the platform.

If you're uncertain if the issue is out of scope, open a ticket and we're happy to help you determine the best way to proceed.

Contacting GitHub Premium Support

GitHub Premium Support customers can use the GitHub Support portal to report issues in writing, in English.

Hours of operation

GitHub Premium Support is available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. If you purchased GitHub Premium Support prior to September 17, 2018, support is limited during holidays. For more information on holidays GitHub Premium Support observes, see the holiday schedule at "About GitHub Support."

Service Level Agreement response times

For tickets you submit, support is available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. The initial response time guaranteed by the SLA is dependent on the priority level of the ticket. Response time begins when GitHub Premium Support sets the priority level of the ticket. A response does not mean the issue has been resolved.

Ticket priority levelInitial response time
Urgent30 minutes
High4 hours

During the initial response time for Urgent priority tickets, you can expect us to do the following:

  • The paged Support Engineer or CRE assigns and carefully reviews your ticket. The goal is to understand the issue, start troubleshooting, and identify next steps.
  • In the initial response, the assigned Support Engineer or CRE will acknowledge ticket receipt and assignment as well as provide next steps to clarify and troubleshoot the situation. To assist with resolving your issue, the Support Engineer or CRE may ask for additional information such as screenshots, error messages, log files, diagnostics files, support bundles, or the output of specific console commands.
  • Depending on the issue, the assigned Support Engineer or CRE may collaborate with others in Support, Engineering, or the regional incident commander.
  • If a callback was requested upon opening the Urgent ticket, the assigned Support Engineer or CRE will determine if, at the current time, screen sharing is the most efficient way of driving the ticket towards resolution. If so, they will extend an offer to you to join a screen sharing session.

Assigning a priority to a support ticket

When you contact GitHub Premium Support, you can choose one of four priorities for the ticket: Urgent, High, Normal, or Low. For more information, see "About ticket priority."

Resolving and closing support tickets

GitHub Premium Support may consider a ticket solved after providing an explanation, recommendation, usage instructions, workaround instructions, or by advising you of an available GitHub Enterprise Server release that addresses the issue.

If you use a custom or unsupported plug-in, module, or custom code, GitHub Premium Support may ask you to remove the unsupported plug-in, module, or code while attempting to resolve the issue. If the problem is fixed when the unsupported plug-in, module, or custom code is removed, GitHub Premium Support may consider the ticket solved.

GitHub Premium Support may close a ticket if the ticket is outside the scope of support or if multiple attempts to contact you have gone unanswered. If GitHub Premium Support closes a ticket due to lack of response, you can request that GitHub Premium Support reopen the ticket.

Receiving credits for missed responses to support tickets
