Ways to Engage with the Zenoss Community
Zenoss is Open Source Software, so like other open source software there's plenty of ways to get help.
- IRC Channel
- #zenoss on irc.freenode.net. Currently we have slightly over 100 users, answers occasionally take some time but someone is usually awake if the sun is up over the US or Europe.
- Our forums are available both to search if you're having an issue, or to ask questions and post issues to. There's also a Zenoss-Announce group with announcements and information about Zenoss events and news.
- I found a bug
- Zenoss uses JIRA to track bugs. Create an account and file a bug, or browse reported bugs. Bug FAQ
- I want to follow you on Twitter
- Sure, Remember, Twitter isn't a support forum, so we can't answer questions there! If you still want to follow us, we're @Zenoss on Twitter.
- What about documentation?
- You're already here, welcome! If you're getting started, you might specifically look at how to Add a Device, part of our new tutorial-style User Guide that we are creating on the wiki. We also have our PDF documentation available.
Note: Editing is restricted to trusted users only. If you need to edit the wiki, such as adding or correcting an article, or publishing a ZenPack, and do not have the trusted_users role, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your understanding as we work to stomp out spam.
