Can a customer manage their support cases from the CSP? 


  • Palo Alto Networks

If you have this permission, you may manage your case using the Customer Support Portal (CSP) > ‘Support’ link.



You will need to access the specific support case from the Support Cases tab in CSP.  Access the case by clicking on the Case Number in the CSP Support Cases view.  You can search for a specific case with the Search Cases option on the right side. Enter the case number in the field then click ' Go! '


Once you have selected your case, the options available to you will be displayed in the ‘Manage Your Case’ tab. Note: If your case was just created, or is in a ‘Closed’ status, these options may not all be available.  


Requesting a Case Update


If you need an update prior to the stated SLA response time, you may request an update using the form provided. Completing the form by explaining the reason for the request then Submitting the request will notify the Case Owner and their Manager.
