Escalate a bug in My Esri

Last Published: January 22, 2024


If your support case is attached to an existing bug or has been diagnosed as a new bug with Esri software and it is adversely affecting your business, you can escalate the bug through for additional consideration in upcoming releases.

A bug can only be escalated if the following conditions are met:

  • Your organization must have active software maintenance.
  • The bug has not already been escalated by another user within your organization.
Enhancement requests cannot be escalated. To add your use case to an existing enhancement, you can create a technical support case or use the Ideas site to either create a new idea or support an existing idea.


To escalate a bug, follow the steps below.

  1. Go My Esri and log in using your Esri Account.
Log in to My Esri
  1. On the Organization Profile page for your organization, click the Support drop-down, and click Bugs & Enhancements, as shown in the next image.
You must be an authorized caller and member of the organization in My Esri. This account must be linked to your Customer Number to view cases and bugs.
  1. On the Bug & Enhancements page, notice that you can see all the defects and their status submitted or attached to your cases on your behalf.
