Known Issues · About

The Salesforce Known Issues Site exists to enhance trust and customer success by providing visibility into Known salesforce.com Issues.

FAQ

Which Known Issues are Published?

At its own discretion, Salesforce Customer Support and Engineering publishes known issues based on the number of customer reports, the severity of the issue, and the availability of a workaround. If an issue you are encountering is not listed, it may not have fit the criteria for publishing on the Known Issues Site. Not all known bugs are published: often bugs are resolved quickly or do not affect customers.

When Can I Expect Salesforce to Update or Fix Known Issues?

Known Issues move through stages of triage, engineering, and deployment. Salesforce Engineering and Support provides updates and status estimates, however, no expressed or implied guarantee is made regarding the resolution of any Known Issue.

How is the Known Issues Site Different From trust.salesforce.com?

Trust and Known Issues are different, but complementary sites:

  • Trust (http://trust.salesforce.com) provides live and historical data on system performance, planned maintenance schedules, and security threats.
  • Known Issues provides information about specific defects (bugs) in the salesforce.com platform which Salesforce Engineering is aware of.

What Can I do If I Do Not See My Issue Here? How Can I Report a New Issue?

Contact Salesforce Support if you have questions about an Issue affecting your Organization which is not listed here.
