User Support

So you can get the best support from us we ask that you provide us with specific information when contacting us with a support request:

  • The version of the software that you are using.
  • Description of the issue you are experiencing.
  • Detailed steps so that the issue can be recreated by our team.
  • Download a troubleshoot zip file from the CMS central ‘error log’ and attach to your support ticket.

CMS error log

The CMS collects messages from all the components within the platform; CMS, Players, API, Maintenance etc and so is a valuable resource when investigating issues.

CMS logging can be provided from the Report Fault page located under the Advanced section of the Menu. Click on start to be taken through the fault wizard which will guide you through the steps to collect and download a file.
