With our SLA, you will receive a faster response time and higher level of support for critical issues that might need to be acknowledged and resolved in a timely manner. Our dedicated team of experts is committed to providing you with the assistance you need when any question or issue arises.

Scope of support coverage

data.world will provide support limited to the following scope of services. Issues outside of this scope will be reviewed and handled best as we can, with no guarantees of successful resolution.

  • General questions and feedback related to the data.world platform.

  • Account management and access assistance.

  • Questions related to the data.world APIs or Integrations.

  • Questions related to SQL or SPARQL queries on data.world.

  • Best practices from the data.world community and customers.

  • Recommendations and support for connecting data sources to data.world.

data.world will not cover:

  • Dataset sourcing requests. While we would love to help all of our members find the exact data they’re looking for, if it’s not on the data.world platform, we unfortunately don’t have the resources to track it down.

  • Fixing issues within 3rd party integrations. In most cases we don’t have access to 3rd-party integration codebases, so data.world will help to troubleshoot any issues to rule out our ability to fix it and report confirmed issues to 3rd-party integration owners.

  • Troubleshooting custom scripts or applications built on top of the data.world platform, outside of the data.world API calls.

Channels for requesting support

The data.world support team exclusively monitors tickets from the following channels:

Proactive Monitoring

data.world employs multiple services to monitor our systems and applications 24×7 for problems and anomalous activity. In the event of any issue affecting data.world’s applications, supporting servers, or databases, on-call members of our Operations and Engineering teams will be notified and respond immediately to diagnose and address any issues.

Any service impacting event is also communicated through status.data.world, with updates posting as the situation progresses to resolution.
