CMDBuild maintenance service

The advantages of open source software with the guaranteed assistance of a commercial solution.

With the Annual Maintenance Service you take advantage of our expertise and ensure the stability of your CMDBuild instance.


The  annual maintenance service includes:
  • resolution of issues related to the CMDBuild Administration / Management modules,
  • notification and remote installation of available updates,
  • bug fix with guaranteed SLA,
  • certified appliance (OVF standard),
  • App Mobile,
  • Advanced Connector,
  • support services and training of the use of the GUI Framework (extra costs will incur).


The Annual Maintenance service will be applied to a single production instance of CMDBuild.

The service is provided by remote connection  and remote support (VPN, SSH, etc.). It will be provided in English during the working days from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. (CET).

The maintenance service covers the warranty resolution of standard code bugs related to the last released version and to all developments done by Tecnoteca technicians, while does not cover the resolution of any errors or problems on additional components (like reports, workflows, custom developments, etc.) configured independently by Customer's technicians or third-party personnel.


The price is defined according to the instance complexity (Small, Medium, Large) and the required service level (Silver, Gold, Platinum). Here you can verify the evaluation criteria of the parameter typologies.


Instance complexity

The parameters used to value the complexity of a CMDBuild instance are as follows:

INSTANCESmallMediumLargeVery Large
Users (IT operator that use CMDBuild)* <=8 <=20 <=40 >40
Workflows <=2 <=5 >5 >5
Connectors with external systems 0 <=2 <=5 >5
Cluster configuration no no yes yes
Tenant configuration** no <=5 <=15 >15

The instance typology we have to consider is the smallest one that satisfies all parameters.

*Users are all who have a registered account in the table of system "User" . Are not considered users those enabled to submit requests (ticket from the portal, by email, etc.) and not recorded in the "User" table.

**There is an additional cost for each configured tenant.



The main features of each service level are described in the following table:

Help Desk via email yes yes yes
Phone service no yes yes
Remote connection yes yes yes
Maximum response time "Ticket A" 3 working days 2 working days 4 working hours
Maximum resolution time for each "Ticket A" 5 working days 3 working days 4 working hours
Alerts for new software versions and upgrades scheduling 10 working days 6 working days 2 working days



The Annual Maintenance service does not include custom activities for the system configuration or other custom developments that can be managed if you sign the Pay-Per-Use support.




Service delivery model

1. Helpdesk

The Helpdesk takes care of issues / bugs sent to Technical Support through the Tecnoteca Ticketing System.

Tecnoteca staff also supports the Customer in solving doubts about how to configure and use the CMDBuild application.

It is required that each Customer establishes a unique referent to perform and manage the alerts to the Ticketing System.

The tickets made must be accurate and detailed, always describing the reference environment, the problem detected and how to repeat the reported error. Should be enclosed in the ticket technical documentation, like possible error screenshots, server logs, database export, eventual XPDL workflow files, any report XML files, etc.

2. Remote Connection

In the assessment of the maintenance services it should be available a remote access to the CMDBuild server, compatible with the Customer's security requirements and the technical needs of the Technical Support.

The  remote connection of Tecnoteca’s technicians to the Customer's server is required for problem analysis, configuration, software changes and problem solving; these operations are performed according to timescale defined by service levels.

3. Upgrade to new software versions

The service provides the upgrade of the production and testing systems used by the customer, on which the new releases will be installed and configured.

Installations are performed according to timescale defined by service levels.

4. Taking charge the issue with email confirmation

Upon receipt of a new ticket, the Helpdesk will verify the presence of an active maintenance contract, will take charge of the request and will send a response email to the Customer within the timescale defined by service levels.

If applicable to the type of problem reported, the technician will also arrange a remote connection with the Customer’s server to retrieve useful information to diagnose the problem.

5. Type A Tickets (application configurations made by Tecnoteca)

Technical Support will analyze and evaluate the problem, will connect remotely for possible further investigations, send any descriptive communication of the solution found, correct the problem in the timescale defined by service levels.

If the problem is related to the "core" code of CMDBuild, will be classified as Type B. In case involving third party components, it will be classified as Type C, and in both cases an email will be sent to the Customer.

6. Type B Tickets (CMDBuild core functionalities)

The service includes taking charge of the issue by the "core" Technical Support, which, after verifying with all the parties involved, will consider the time for any solution to be communicated to the Customer.

When the problem is identified and is attributable to Tecnoteca, Tecnoteca will proceed to its solution.

CMDBuild core problems resolutions are made available at the first release after the alert.

7. Type C Tickets (Third Party Components)

In the event that the problem is not directly relevant to Tecnoteca, as it concerns components developed by third parties or other applications managed by the Customer interoperable with the CMDBuild instance, an explanatory email will be sent to the Customer, which, in addition to the technical explanations, may contain a separate economic assessment for solving the problem or for activating appropriate workarounds.
