View Support, Upgrade, and Contact Info

At the case portal home page, under the Case Portal menu on the right, select My Lithium Products.

If you have more than one Lithium product, scroll through the page to the respective product to view information about it.


Depending on the product type, you can view a number of details about your Lithium Community or Lithium SMM environment.

Useful information you can view here includes:

  • Technical Account Manager & email address (Platinum Support)
  • Maintenance window for your Lithium Community (refer here for specifics)
  • Upgrade version and schedule for your Lithium Community
  • Contact links associated with your environment

A special note on the last bullet point, or the Community - Contact Link section - the list you see here displays members of your team / organization who we have associated with that particular environment. In this section, you'll be able to view who is on the two notification lists we offer (as described here) as well as view who has access to the other case portal seats allotted to your team members.

To request additions, removals or make any changes, simply submit a new case and we'll update our records.
