ASL Standard Support Methods
Email: The simplest and easiest way to get support is to send email to: email@example.com
Support Portal: Support Portal - Use the portal to open a new case, to report a bug or to search the documentation and knowledge base.
License Manager: Subscription Management Portal - use this to control your subscriptions.
Wiki and Documentation: Atomicorp Wiki - The Wiki is an open documentation platform to supplement the knowledge base and also to provide an area for members of the ASL community to add their own support documentation, customizations and other information regarding our products. The Wiki is open to any registered user.
FAQs: ASL FAQ
Knowledge Base: Atomicorp Knowledge Base and product documentation search (Must log in to the support portal)
Atomicorp Support Portal
The portal allows customers to setup multiple support accounts for their personnel, therefore it uses a different system from the Atomicorp product download manager. Your login credentials for installing ASL will not work to log into the support portal so just select the New user? Please register option under the support portal login screen.
Portal accounts are setup by our support team to ensure that requests for access to an account are valid, and also to set the support parameters for a given customer. Therefore if you request access to the support portal it may take some time for a member of the support team to review the request and set up the account. Also, make sure you fill out your email address with any support portal access request. We can not send you your login credentials without it!
ASL Extended Support Methods
Phone support is also provided to Extended Support contract holders. Please review your contract details for phone numbers and your account representatives information.
If you wish to purchase extended support, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for details.

Recommended Support Steps
1. Check the ASL FAQ to make sure your issue is not already covered
2. check this Wiki and ASL documentation
3. Check the knowledge base
We use the Knowledge Base to document ASL, provide tips and to expand on issues that can not be documented as easily in either this FAQ or in the Wiki.
4. Check the forums
Your issue may already have been addressed by another user, or we may have responded to it already in the forums.
We do read the forums, but if you use either email or the support portal you will be communicating directly with the entire support team and we always respond to direct customer requests first. The forums are not a direct communication method, so if you issue is urgent please open a case or email support.
5. Open a case in the support portal if you can not find your answer in any of the above
You can open a case directly from ASL by clicking on the support tab in ASL or you can log into the portal directly here:
This is the best way to open a case and its also the fastest.
6. Send an email to support
We are fanatical about our customers, so please let us know what we can do to help and we'll get right back to you.
