Does IAP collect any information from my system?
No, Itential Automation Platform does not collect or report on any telemetric information from your system.
Does the NSO adapter have to be restarted to reflect a service pack upgrade in NSO?
Yes. The NSO adapter will read and compile the service model yang files at startup (APIs such as
getDevices will continue to work even without an adapter restart).
If you are using the NSO adapter for service operations (i.e., Service Manager, Form Builder, etc.), restart the adapter after updating the NSO service models and the adapter will re-read the yang files. If you have forms linked to the updated service models, you will likely have to rebuild some parts of these forms in addition to restarting the adapter to ensure the forms are aligned with the updated service model.
How do users submit a help desk ticket ?
You just need to access you Service Desk account and create a Product Support ticket.
