We're excited to announce that AppDynamics is transitioning our Support case handling system to Cisco Support Case Manager (SCM), enhancing your support experience with a standardized approach across all Cisco products. This migration is scheduled to take place on June 14th. As the transition date approaches, you will notice banners appearing in both the AppDynamics Admin Portal and on our help website ( These banner notifications will keep you informed about the change and notify you once the transition has been completed. 


What does this mean for you? 

AppDynamics will notify you once your profile and support cases have been successfully migrated, allowing you to seamlessly access your support cases in SCM. Until the migration is complete, you will continue to have access to your cases through the current AppDynamics case handling tool. Access to the new SCM platform requires that your profile is migrated to the "Cisco User Identity," a process that will be automatically handled for you. For more information on the "Cisco User Identity" changes, please refer to the communication sent via email and published on the AppDynamics Community located here. 

 Key points to remember: 

  • You will still be able to open cases from the portal and website, although the interface will undergo a visual update. 
  • You will need a account to access SCM 
  • Your open cases and up to 30 days of closed cases will be seamlessly migrated to the new system.

How do I open a case with AppDynamics Support?  

First, make sure that you have access to Cisco SCM by having a valid account. If you were part of the migration this should have been done automatically for you. If still you need to request a account, please refer to the earlier communication about User Identity changes found here. 

Make your way to the AppDynamics portal on When you log in to the AppDynamics portal you will be automatically redirected to Cisco SCM. 


Case Open:  When there is only one AppDynamics Subscription associated with the User (most cases) 

  1. Navigate to the AppDynamics Portal Link to the Support section (see Figure 1) and click the link “Open a new ticket”.  


     Figure 1 

  2. You will be taken directly to the “Describe problem page” where you will be prompted to enter details of the incident reported (Figure 2). Proceed to select a pre-set sub technology by clicking the “Manually Select a Technology” button.

  3. Choose the Technology that most closely relates to the issue and click the “Select” button.

  4. After you submit the case, the system asks if you’d like to receive e-mail updates with details of the ticket, choose to opt in our out (Figure 4). RyanParedez_3-1716400132148.png

 Case Open when there are multiple subscriptions associated with a user 

  1. Follow the same steps as in the “Case Opening procedure with one subscription associated with a user”, by going to the AppDynamics Portal Link to Support (see Figure 1) and clicking the link to “OPEN SUPPORT TICKETS”.  
  2. If there are multiple subscriptions associated with your account, choose the correct subscription number from the menu (Figure 5) then click the “Next” button.RyanParedez_5-1716400132149.png

  3. SCM detects you being associated with AppDynamics only and reduces the Tech and Sub-Tech to AppDynamics choices (Figure 3).         
  4. After you submit the case and if opting for such, the system automatically sends an e-mail with details of the ticket, pointing to the newly opened case in SCM for case management (Figure 4).  


Updating a case  

Go to the SCM start page, where under “Cases”, you pick “My Cases” (Figure 6) and select the case that needs updating. Here you edit your case and make sure to save the changes before exiting.

Upload an attachment to a case   

If you need to upload and attach a file to a case, you can do so when opening a “new case”, or by going to an “existing case”. When opening a new case, you’re prompted to upload an attachment when the case has been submitted. For an existing case, navigate to the “My Cases” view as seen in Figure 6. In the right corner press the “Add File” (Figure 7) button, upload the file and save.

Search for a case 

To view an open or migrated case in SCM, navigate to the “Create and Manage Support cases”-view. There you type in the Case ID number (either new or old case ID) in the Search-field (Figure and press enter.   



Figure 8 


Case Satisfaction 

After migrating to Cisco SCM, at case closure, you will be provided an industry standard 10-point scale and asked to choose a value to reflect satisfaction on support of the case.

Case severity 

In conjunction with the migration to Cisco SCM, AppDynamics customers will be making use of the Case severity definition as determined by Cisco in the table below.   

Case Severity 


Severity 1 (S1) 

Critical impact on the customer’s business operations. Cisco’s hardware, software, or as a service product is down.  

Severity 2 (S2) 

Substantial impact on the customer’s business operations. Cisco hardware, software, or as a service product is degraded.  

Severity 3 (S3) 

Minimal impact on the customer’s business operations. Cisco hardware, software, or as a service product is partially degraded. 

Severity 4 (S4) 

No impact on the customer’s business operations. The customer requests information about features, implementation, or configuration for Cisco’s hardware, software, or as a service product. 


Note! Post migration, some functions will be limited. These include:  

  • All open tickets will be migrated to the new system (you will receive a notification with the new case ID). 
  • All tickets closed on or later than May 14th will be available in the new system (you will receive a notification with the new case ID). 

 Email case open transition to Cisco email domain 

Additionally, starting June 3, we will transition to using a Cisco email address ( for opening AppDynamics cases via email.   

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this transition period. We're committed to providing you with the best possible support experience, and we believe this migration will contribute to achieving that goal.

In the past, we could look at organizations to see the questions asked by members of the organization.

I would like to ask how we can track the questions sent by organization members now.

Post this migration our existing SAML-based identity federation through our organization's identity provider doesn't work for users. Is their any plan to integration IdP with SCM for SSO login ?


Upvote to Dhal's question re being able to see questions raised by members of our organisation?

@Dhal.Chou - There are tabs for My Cases and All Cases:


For myself under All Cases I'm only seeing my own tickets but it is possible that I'm the only one that has raised a ticket in the past 90 days and that the tickets from other organisation members, being older than that, weren't migrated.  Are you able to confirm that All Cases doesn't show tickets from other members of your organisation?

Kind Regards,


New Poster


Thanks for your reply!

I adjusted the time range to 90 days in all cases and checked all status cases, and I saw the case questions asked by my colleagues in the organization.

thank you very much




Thanks for checking and confirming - gives me the answer I was looking for as well then.  Great joint effort


FYI on the migrated cases,  we migrated 30 days of data from May 14th on,  so if you put in a range of 90 days,  you'll still only be able to see 30 days (well from May 14th) of data for now.

@Mukesh.Singh  for SSO/Federated customers,  you'll still be able to log in using SSO to the AppD Portal,  but since Cisco support tools require a CCO ID,  Federated customers will need to go through the same process to get a CCO ID and then when you need to open a case you'll need to log in with that CCO ID.  If your company is having challenges,  please 1:1 me at and we'll get you some support.
