Ripple supports all issues and payment failures after go-live during the course of normal business activities. The Technical Services team at Ripple is setup to provide best in class support and expert technical assistance for fast problem resolution. The Project team will setup a handover to the Technical Services team prior to commercialization. The Technical Services team will conduct session "Introducing the Customer to Ripple's Support Model" and walk the customer through the channels available to raise support tickets for technical assistance.
Ripple’s support model is built around two tiers of support:
All issues submitted to Ripple Support are first routed to a Technical Services Engineer (TSE) for review. This team is setup to provide 24 x 7 x 365 support to customers based on the terms in their contract. A member of the team reviews the customer request to confirm that all the details required to troubleshoot the issue have been provided by the customer. They will ask for any additional details, for example logs, payment object, and so on, that might not be provided by the customer. Once received, the team will review all the data provided to troubleshoot the issue. If the TSE suspects that there is no problem with the customer’s Ripple setup and the issue could be with the counterparty’s Ripple setup, they will request logs or additional information or both from the counterparty.
Once the TSE has all the requested information, they track payment flows between the parties to trace the payment and find out the root cause of the issue. Once located, the TSE then communicates the root cause and fix or workaround to the customer.
If the TSE suspects the issue could be due to a bug or defect in Ripple’s products, they'll request additional assistance from Level 2 support.
RippleNet Engineering and Infrastructure will review any issues whose root cause could be a bug or defect. The first step is to recreate the issue in-house. After the issue is recreated, the teams will aim to identify the code defect causing the issue. They will look at potential solutions for the code defect. Solutions could include a code fix or a technical/business workaround that the customer needs to implement.
If a code fix is necessary, RippleNet Engineering releases a patch to address the issue. Patches are tested in-house to confirm that the issue has been resolved. Further regression testing is performed to ensure that the code fix has not impacted any other system functionality.
Depending on the severity and criticality of the issue, the fix could be released to the customer as either an emergency (critical) fix for urgent issues, or as part of an upcoming release if the customer can resume business as usual with a workaround while they await the new product release.
- Upgrades and hot-fixes will need to be implemented in a timely manner and operations will need to be familiar with the process.
- The full payment process flow touches many points of a member and partners’ infrastructure. Issues may arise that are unrelated to the RippleNet software and cannot be solved by the Ripple Support team, as the team would not have any access or insight into their infrastructure.
