How would you rate this page?

The How would you rate this page? FeedbackIcon icon opens a feedback window. Alternately, go to System Settings > General, find the Support widget, and click File Ticket to see the feedback window.

The feedback window allows users to send page ratings, comments, and report issues or suggest improvements directly to the TrueNAS development team. Submitting a bug report or improvement suggestion requires a free Atlassian account.

Click between the different tabs at the top of the window to see different options for your specific feedback.

Rate this page Use the Rate this page tab to quickly review and provide comments on the currently active TrueNAS user interface screen. You can include a screenshot of the current page and/or upload additional images with your comments.
Report a bug or Suggest an improvement

Use the Report a bug or Suggest an improvement tabs to notify the development team when a TrueNAS screen or feature is either not working as intended or can be evolved with new functionality. For example, report a bug when a middleware error and traceback appears while saving a configuration change or enter an improvement suggestion when a feature can be configured in fewer clicks.

Both bug reports and improvement suggestions are created in the publicly-visible TrueNAS Jira project and have the same reporting fields.

Enter a descriptive summary in the Subject. TrueNAS can show a list of existing Jira tickets with similar summaries. When there is an existing ticket about the issue, consider clicking on that ticket and leaving a comment instead of creating a new one. Duplicate tickets are closed in favor of consolidating feedback into one report.

Enter details about the issue in the Message. Keep the details concise and focused on how to reproduce the issue, what the expected result of the action is, and what the actual result of the action was. This helps ensure a speedy ticket resolution. Include system debug and screenshot files to also speed up the issue resolution.

Bug Reports from Enterprise Licensed Systems
