Prepare Your App Project for Support

Last update: Edit

1 Introduction

In the Mendix Support Portal, users can select an affected app for a submitted request. The apps that can be selected are based on the project authorization of the user (regardless of their organization). Users that have an Edit permission for Deploy or Capture are able to submit and view tickets for the app connected to that project.

Mendix Support needs to know the app project identification for on-premises apps so it can show the correct apps. Therefore, Mendix asks that on-premises users provide the App ID of their projects. Please invite all the App Team members who should be able to submit tickets and provide them with the specified role, then contact Mendix Support with the project information.

The steps in this how-to should be done for every new app that is created if you want to be able to submit ticket requests in the Mendix Support Portal. Setting this up as a standard process when creating a new Mendix application is recommended.

This how-to will teach you how to do the following:

  • Configure project authorization to select affected application(s) in the Mendix Support Portal

2 Giving Team Members Access to Submit Tickets

There are two ways to give team members access to submit tickets: by assigning the correct role to a user when adding them as an App Team member, or by changing the role of existing App Team members.

2.1 Giving a New App Team Member Access

To add users to a project’s App Team and give them access to submit tickets for a specific app, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the App Team page of your app project in the Mendix Developer Portal.
  2. Click Invite Member to invite the users who should be able to submit/view Support tickets concerning this app project.
  3. Assign one of the following roles to users you want to give access to creating tickets for the app:

    • Business Engineer
    • Product Owner
    • Scrum Master

    These roles have an Edit permission set for Deploy or Capture, thus they can submit/view Support tickets for the app project. For more details on setting permissions, see the Managing the Team section of App Team.

  4. To finalize the setup, email with the App name and App ID (both of which can be found on the General page for the app project).

2.2 Giving Existing App Team Members Access

To give existing project members access to submit tickets, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Security page of your app project in the Mendix Developer Portal.
  2. Change the ROLE for the user who needs access to one of the following:

    • Business Engineer
    • Product Owner
    • Scrum Master

    You can also click Role settings to create your own roles and customize the permissions for existing roles. For more information, see the Editing App Team Roles section of How to Manage Company & App Roles.

  3. To finalize the setup, email with the App name and App ID.
