This is to inform our valued customers and partners that from Saturday, January 23, 2021, the support process for Alfresco has successfully transitioned to Hyland systems.

Access to Hyland Community, Hyland’s dedicated customer and partner portal, is available now and customers and partners can enter the site through the Alfresco ID support portal or directly through Hyland Community.

For questions or assistance with this change, please engage with your customer success manager. We appreciate your continued partnership and remain committed to assisting you with your support needs.

Below is an outline of what Alfresco customers and partners will experience as part of the Hyland community.
