We have support engineers configured geographically to cover all timezones, and will "follow the sun," handing off as necessary to work P1 incidents until they are resolved. P2 through P4 incidents are typically handled by a single support engineer, although occasionally these will also be handed off to take advantage of an engineer's language, timezone, or technical expertise. Support personnel are tightly integrated with the product engineering team and provide the interface between the customer and the product engineering team.

Use the web services provided by the API to create, read, update, delete, and search content in MarkLogic Server. The Management API is a REST-based API that allows you to administer MarkLogic Server and access MarkLogic Server instrumentation with no provisioning or set-up. You can use the API to perform administrative tasks such as initialising or extending a cluster; creating databases, forests, and App Servers; and managing tiered storage partitions. The API also provides the ability to easily capture detailed information on MarkLogic Server objects and processes, such as hosts, databases, forests, App Servers, groups, transactions, and requests from a wide variety of tools.
