Oracle Support (SR) Details

How do I create an SR?
To create an SR, click Create SR at the top of the Service Requests home page or in the top left corner of the Service Requests region. Depending on the Support IDs registered in your profile, you may then need to select Software or Hardware.
The Create Service Request wizard guides you through the process of specifying product information, and attaching configuration information to the SR when it is filed with Oracle Support. To ensure that Oracle Support has the most accurate system configuration details, you should associate the correct system to your service request.
Note: If you do not have privileges for creating SRs for the selected Support ID, the Create SR is visible. If required, contact your administrator to request this privilege.

How do I create an SR based on an existing SR?
You can save time by using an existing SR to create a new SR. To create an SR based on an existing SR, do one of the following:
  • Right-click an SR in the Service Requests region, then select Create SR Like Selected SR.
  • Select an SR in the Service Requests region, click Actions, then select Create SR Like Selected SR.
The product information on the second page of the Create Service Request wizard is automatically filled in with information from the existing SR.

How do I create an SR from a system?
You do not need to be in the Service Requests tab to create an SR. In most places where My Oracle Support displays a system, you can create an SR by right-clicking the system, then selecting Create SR. For example, on the Dashboard tab, you can right-click a system in the Systems region and select Create SR.

What are draft SRs and how are they saved, updated, and deleted?
When you create an SR, you can choose to save the SR as a draft. Draft SRs are also created when you upload a file when you create an SR. Draft SRs are listed in the Draft Service Requests region.
To view a draft SR, do one of the following:
  • Click the draft SR link in the Draft Service Requests region.
  • Select a row in the Draft Service Requests region, then select View from the Actions menu.
To update a draft SR, do one of the following:
  • Click the draft SR link.
  • Select a row in the Draft Service Requests region, then select Update from the Actions menu.

Note: Draft SRs are deleted after 30 days of inactivity. To retain a draft SR, update it within 30 days.

Note: You must complete and submit the draft SR to make it active.
To delete a draft SR, do one of the following:

Note: Only the person who created the SR or an administrator for the Support ID associated with the SR can delete a draft SR.
  • Right-click a draft SR, then select Delete Draft SR.
