View Legacy Support Tickets


This section only applies to users who created a support ticket before March 2, 2019.

If you became an Armor user after March 2, 2019, then you will not see the View Archived Tickets section.

Before the release of AMP 2.50 on March 2, 2019, all existing tickets, including open or closed tickets, were moved to the new ticketing platform.

For any open or unresolved ticket, Armor automatically closed the ticket in the previous ticketing system, placed the ticket in the View Archived Tickets section of the Armor Management Portal (AMP), and then recreated the ticket in the new ticketing system.  

The View Archived Tickets section will only contain tickets from the previous ticketing system. You cannot reopen or edit an archived support ticket; you can simply read an archived ticket, as well as access any attached information.

  1. In the Armor Management Portal (AMP), in the left-side navigation, click Support
  2. Click Tickets
  3. Click View Archived Tickets or Archived Tickets
  4. Search for your desired ticket, or locate your ticket within the list.

Some archived tickets will display as Open or Attention until Armor Support can properly close the ticket in the previous ticketing system.

Ticket #This column displays the number associated with the archived ticket.
DateThis column displays the date the archived ticket was resolved in the archived screen.

When viewing additional details for a particular ticket, the comments within the ticket will be color-coded to easily identify if the comment was entered by Armor or a member of your organization.

Troubleshooting

  • A ticket was never created in this account.
  • You do not have permission to view a ticket.
    • You must have the Read Ticket(s), Read Ticket Group(s), and Write Ticket Group(s) permissions enabled to view and create tickets. Contact your account administrator to enable this permission. To learn how to update your permissions, see Roles and Permissions.
