Creating a request for additional IP addresses

You can submit configuration change requests to add IP addresses for your CenturyLink IQ® Networking products.

To submit a request for additional IP addresses:

  1. Click the Service Mgmt tab (service management), the Ticketing subtab opens.

    Control Center shows all tickets created in the last 90 days, including tickets CenturyLink has created on your behalf. By default, tickets are organized by the date the ticket was created (starting with the newest). The Status column shows the status for each ticket: New, Assigned, Pending, Closed, Canceled. Potential tickets are marked with a green flag ().
  1. From the Create New Ticket list, select Configuration Request.
  1. To start the ticket, you'll need the product/service ID for the service you need repaired. Do one of the following:

    • if you know the product or service ID, type it into the Product/Service ID field

    • if you don't know the product or service ID, use the lists to search for the product or service needing repair
       
  2. Click enter on your keyboard.
     
Important: Network managed devices are frequently bundled with a CenturyLink® IQ Networking service port/circuit. If your services are bundled, it's critical—when requesting a configuration change or reporting a repair issue—that you create your ticket on the Managed Services device ID, and not on the IQ Networking service ID.
  1. Click on the blue arrow for the product you'd like add a configuration change to.

    2. Type the contact information for the Shared WhoIs Project (SWIP). 

    3. Add any notes or details in the comments box.
  1. In the Contacts section, either leave yourself as the primary contact or select a different contact from the Primary Contact list or manually fill in the contact information for that person. (To make completing this section faster, Control Center automatically lists all users for your enterprise ID as possible contacts.)

  2. In the Local Contact section, you can choose to add a local contact, all fields are required.

  3. If you need to attach any documents (such as a more detailed explanation of the problem or additional details pertaining to your request), you can upload up to two documents (up to 2 MB each). To attach a document, click Add Attachment, browse to locate the file, and click Open.
