 You are a Broadcom customer with Support account and want to update your list of contacts for support cases.


Broadcom customers with active support / maintenance contracts must identify Named Technical Contacts (also known as; “named caller”, “designated caller” or “technical contact”) that will engage with Broadcom Technical Support. A Technical Contact will represent your organization by working with Broadcom Technical Support.   It is important that Technical Contact(s) information is current and accurate as this ensures the ability for an active Maintenance/Support Customer to open a Technical Support case when contacting Broadcom Support for CA Software products. This document outlines the steps to change Technical Contact(s) information.

Adding or Changing Technical Contact(s)

Technical Contacts (Designated Callers) enrollment or changes can be requested via the Broadcom Support Portal here.

For Advanced Support agreements: Customer may designate up to six (6) Designated Contacts to interact with Customer’s assigned DSE (Designated Support Engineer).
Please note: The DSE does not have the authority to add Broadcom portal contacts.

  • Product Name
  • Site ID
  • Company Name
  • Address
  • First Name and Last Name
