FME Flow Hosted Support Policy
Safe Software makes access to our FME Community and training programs free for all FME users. Safe Software’s one-to-one Customer Support is available for customers on active maintenance or subscription for supported versions of the FME platform. If you purchased maintenance through one of our Partners, please contact them directly for Customer Support.
Our support channels can be accessed from our support homepage. These may be updated from time to time at Safe's sole discretion.
The following issues are included in Customer Support:
