Please read our Security Policies Page for information about Sath's approach to handling security issues.
- Sath Support helps with solutions and bug reporting.
- Critical bugs will generally be fixed in the next maintenance release.
- Non-critical bugs will be scheduled according to priority considerations.
Critical Priority Definition
Production applications are down or experiencing a major malfunction, causing business revenue loss or high numbers of staff unable to perform their normal functions. This includes security issues.
Sath supports major versions for two years after the first major iteration of that version was released (for example, we support SecHub 1.3.x for 2 years after SecHub 6.3.0 was released).
For versions that are supported, customers can raise issues via Sath Support. If a bug is discovered, it will be prioritized based on our resolution priority policy and may require you to upgrade to the version which includes the fix.
For critical security bugs, please see our Security Bugfix Policy on which versions we will patch critical security fixes for.
Versions earlier than two years behind the latest release are also classified as being in End of Life status.
Sath does not provide support for instances on versions that are End of Life. The only exception is for assistance related to upgrading from your EOL version to a supported version.
You can download the latest versions of our software here.
You can access documentation for all versions of our products (including versions that have passed their EOL date and may not appear in your search engine).
Eligibility and Software Maintenance
Software maintenance includes access to support and providing product updates for the corresponding software license.
Refer to the End User License Agreement for specific terms of the agreement. After the active maintenance period expires, the software will continue to function, but you will no longer be able to access support or software updates (including security bug fixes). Note that free licenses include community support only.
Support is open to system administrators and account holders. End-users will be redirected to a system administrator.
See Sath's bug fixing and Sath Security Bug Fix Policy policies for further discussion.
Administering Sath products requires a baseline technical skill set, including but not limited to:
Comfort running SQL commands and installing a database. It's best to have a good DBA for database troubleshooting and administration.
Familiarity with installing and maintaining production web technologies
Customers are responsible for administering and upgrading their installations. Sath Standard support will guide how to do this, but we will not be able to provide step-by-step maintenance and installation.
If you require further assistance with this level of implementation, please consider the following resources:
- Sath Paid Support
- Sath Training
- Sath Cloud Services
- Sath Experts
Help With Unsupported Issues
The Sath Community is a great channel for discussions outside the bounds of the Standard Sath Support offering.
Working With Our Partners
Sath Partners (our 3rd party value-added resellers) offer an additional wide range of professional services, training, customization, and paid support.
Third-Party Product Integration
Sath products interface with a variety of technologies. Front-end solutions like Web Servers (eg Apache HTTP Server), load balancers, single sign-on solutions (SSO), SSL certificates, and LDAP repositories add functionality that is often critical to the functioning of our products.
Sath will endeavor to provide documentation for integration with these 3rd party applications but does not provide support for 3rd party applications. We are unable to provide support when a failure in a 3rd party application occurs.
Sath offers support for certain add-ons as listed in our supported add-ons list. For unsupported add-ons, issues should be raised with the provider of the add on. If you're doing development work, visit the Sath Developer Network.
Beta and Development Releases
Sath does not offer support for milestone or beta releases, but we do support release candidates. These will be tracked with the terminology 'RC' in the version title.
Databases and Application Servers
Server Containers and Databases are integral technologies; without them, Sath products cannot function. We provide integration instructions for getting our products to work on supported platforms, but we do not support configurations that differ from the procedures described in our product documentation.
Customization and Development Requests
If you're working to extend or customize our products and encounter a problem, Sath support is happy to help document the problem and relay information to our development teams as follows:
We can help you verify whether our code is working as intended and document any bugs.
If we provide examples of how to make customization in our documentation, we will work to make sure that documentation is up-to-date.
For in-depth questions about implementing customization, we will refer customers to our developer network or partner network.
Sath does not support customers performing direct data manipulation of application databases via queries such as INSERT, UPDATE or DELETE, as they can easily lead to data integrity problems. If Sath encounters manipulation or customization at this level, we may ask customers to restore data from their last known working state or to engage an Expert to help recover their instance to a supportable state. If you are confident your UPDATE or INSERT is safe and your change management system is reliable, refer to the specific product's database documentation.
If there are data integrity problems due to defects in a product, Sath will provide workarounds or solutions to these problems that may involve SQL queries. We use SQL-based solutions as a last resort.
Using SQL for business intelligence is beyond the scope of Sath Support. Some of our products have a community page for database queries. Please help us as well as the community by contributing your knowledge!
Deployment Planning Activity
Planning for rolling out our products or capacity planning for large instances is better suited for service offerings than Sath Support. We will refer this kind of activity to our partner network. This includes establishing specific upgrade and deployment plans for existing installations.
