Submitting a Support Ticket

The Cato Support portal offers a full range of customer support features and helps you open, update and track technical support incidents quickly and conveniently. You can also use this robust Knowledge Base to find technical documents, FAQs, full product guides, product updates and notifications, and more.

You can also watch a video tutorial on submitting a Support Ticket here.

Submitting a Support Ticket

Use the Submit a request form to submit a ticket with our team and provide additional information related to the issue. All this information helps us to quickly classify and investigate the issue and minimizes back-and-forth emails with Support.

Support focuses on break-fix problems related to your account. For non-break fix, such as deployment-related issues, Support will make a best effort to assist.

After you submit the ticket, you can follow up in the Cato portal or with emails.


Note: You must be a Cato Administrator and be configured in CMA to open a ticket
