Support limitations

  • The support provided by the Alliance is limited to issues related to the setup, configuration, and operation of Ed-Fi software components.
  • Support is offered to the community "as-is." Limitations include:
    • Requests may not be resolvable efficiently or at all due to the expertise of support consultants or the inability to replicate conditions that exist in the field.
    • Responses on U.S. holidays or outside of Central Time working hours may experience delays.
    • We strive to respond and offer help quickly, but large or fluctuating community volume may impact our ability to do that.
