Axim Request Process


We take requests viathe New Issue portal on the openedx/Axim-engineering repository. Axim’s rotating “on-call” engineer will triage your issue within one business day during their own working hours. They will try to give you a time estimate for completion. They may do the work themselves or delegate it to someone else. Note that Axim does not generally provide support on weekends, holidays, the early morning, or the evening (~US-Eastern timezone).
