Process to get compensation
If you think you qualify for compensation, you need to submit two separate requests to get help and compensation.
Report your problem and get help. To do that, submit a technical support request during the incident at support.atlassian.com/contact.
Request a compensation credit. After you submit a technical support ticket, you have until the 15th the month after the problem occurred to submit a compensation request. To do that, submit a separate SLA compensation request, as explained in the next section.
You can only request SLA compensation for production instances of Premium and Enterprise products. Trial and sandbox instances are ineligible for SLA compensation.
Request a compensation credit
You can submit a request for a product if you have one of the following roles:
Billing contact or technical contact (original billing system), or Billing admin (new billing system). Understand billing administration
Site admin for the product or organization admin. Learn more about admin permissions
To submit a request:
From the dropdown What can we help you with?, select Compensation Requests.
From Select a topic, select Cloud Premium SLA compensation request or Cloud Enterprise compensation request, depending on the plan of the product.
Enter the rest of the details for your request and click Submit.
If multiple incidents occur for one product during a given month, include all of them in one compensation ticket. If incidents occur across products, you need to create separate tickets for each product.
After submitting your request, our team will validate the claim and award a service credit when applicable. Once we determine the credit amount, we add it to the ticket. If you disagree with the amount awarded, you have 3 business days to request that we revisit the claim.
Depending on the downtime you experience, we offer the following tiers of service credit:
Monthly uptime percentage
Service credit for Premium products
Service credit for Enterprise products
Less than 99.95%
Less than 99.90%
Less than 99.00%
Less than 95.0%
If your bill is on monthly payments, your service credit will be based on the monthly fee for the impacted product. You receive that credit on your next month’s invoice.
If you pay your bill annually, your service credit will be based on your annual fee (adjusted for amount per month) for the impacted product. You receive that credit on your next annual invoice.
