Online Chat Available for Existing Service Requests

Untitled Document

An online chat session can often answer a question or clarify a situation quickly.

My Oracle Support now offers a new chat feature that enables Oracle Support engineers to contact you instantly online to discuss an open Service Request—to ask a question, share detailed commands and troubleshooting information, or confirm that your issue is resolved.


You always control your availability for an online chat. When you are involved in critical projects or meetings, set your status to “Not Available” and the engineer will contact you using your preferred method. Keeping yourself in the “Available” status lets your Support engineer know when you are online and available for a chat about your Service Request.

If you receive a chat request from a Support engineer, you can decide to accept the chat, request a different time for the chat, or decline the chat.

New Features Available in My Oracle Support

Untitled Document

We upgraded My Oracle Support over the weekend of April 4, 2014. This upgrade brings changes to help you work more effectively with Oracle Support.

The new features include:

  • Oracle Support Chat for Existing SRs—new chat feature enabling Oracle Support engineers to contact you instantly on line to discuss an open Service Request (SR). You control the access; mark yourself available to allow a chat session. View this brief video to learn more.
  • Knowledge Tab—more intuitive user interface makes it easier to see search results from different sources, expand search results, or view product hierarchy and further refine searches by product. In addition, if you have Japanese, Korean, or Chinese set as your preferred language, you can quickly toggle between that language and English documents. Learn more.
  • Patches and Updates Tab—new link added to provide quick access to quarterly Critical Patch Update (CPU) information and Security Alerts.
  • Certifications—enhanced to allow for more complex certification structures.
  • Customer User Administration (CUA)—ability to send an email to the CUA (with a message), requesting approval for the Support Identifier. A CUA can now set a termination date for registered users, which triggers an automated email notification to the user regarding the termination before expiration.
  • Support Identifier Groups—usability and UI improvements. Can automatically copy technical contacts when assets are moved (reduces rework or process mistakes). A message added to Mass Upload function better explains what is happening to the user(s). View this brief video to learn more.
  • Cloud Support Portal—ability to view escalation status, comprehensive help content added to assist users with feature and functionality questions, and new alert to complete additional questions that may expedite issue resolution.
For additional details, view the Release Notes and also see the User Resource Center's Discover New Features tab for the latest My Oracle Support Training available for new features.
