There are 4 severity levels used to classify a case:

Severity 1 - Critical: Production use of the software is stopped or so severely impacted that authorized end users cannot reasonably use it. You must call-in by phone to notify our team, in addition to submitting the case.

Severity 2 - High: Use of the software can continue; however, productivity is significantly decreased.

Severity 3 - Medium: Major software documented features are unavailable, but a workaround is available, or less significant software documented features are unavailable with no reasonable workaround.

Severity 4 - Low: An issue that involves an inquiry regarding a routine technical issue; information requested on application capabilities, navigation, installation or configuration.
