  1. Select the asset you need help with:
Select Asset

Note: If you cannot select the serial number, check the support type. If it says Partner Enabled Premium Support, it means that you cannot create a support case directly with Palo Alto Networks for that asset. Contact your ASC partner who will assist you or open the technical support case on your behalf.
