Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Should I create a Service Request if I don't know how to configure the product in order to achieve a business requirement?
A. You should always review the official OFS product documentation prior to opening a Service Request. The documentation can be located at OFSC Documentation. If you feel the documentation does not provide you with enough information, you can always create a Service Request asking for assistance. The OFS Support team will make their best effort to assist you by providing suggestions or point you in the right direction for documentation.
If the request requires complex configuration changes and/or it is a request that should be forwarded to Oracle Consulting, the ticket will be change to Solved and the requirement will be directed to the Account Manager or Technical Account Manager (TAM) in charge of your account who may engage the Oracle Consulting Services (OCS) team if necessary.
The OFS Support team will let you know if this process is needed.
Q. Is there an on-hold status for my Service Requests?
A. There is no on-hold status for Service Requests. If the customer needs to perform testing for a Service Request it will be placed in the Waiting status until it is updated. If the customer does not feel that they can perform their actions within 9 days the ticket should be closed and either reopened or a new ticket created if further issues exist in the future.
Q. If I have a Service Request created for the OFS product and after it was analyzed it was proved that the problem is in another Oracle Product (ESB, Oracle B2C Service, SIEBEL, PaaS, etc.) can we use the same Service Request since they are all Oracle Products?
A. No, the same Service Request cannot be used. The OFS ticketing system is only for OFS related issues. If the problem is in a different Oracle Product, the ticket will be closed and you will be informed that you will need to open a Service Request with the appropriate Oracle product in the appropriate ticketing system. If you are uncertain of what the other Oracle products ticketing system is, please contact your Sales Account Manager who should be able to assist you.
