For customers in Japan, we provide a Japanese-language support desk as a subset of our global support team. Please contact us by email at or via our web portal. The ThousandEyes support team, who can speak Japanese, is available 9:00am - 5:00pm (Japan time), Monday through Friday (excluding Japan national holidays and Cisco's end-of-year shutdown period) and will respond within the next business day. Similar to global support, a support case number will be issued. Please note that Japanese-language support via chat is currently not available.

Online Collaboration

During a support session, the team may request a screen-sharing session using Webex or your company’s screen-sharing solution.

To facilitate effective online collaboration, first gather the necessary information. Our supporting engineers require this information before joining a collaboration, in order to run checks and investigations on the ThousandEyes side of the issue.

Information We Need

Before you contact Customer Engineering, collect the following information:

  • Names of any agents involved.

  • Names of any tests involved.

  • Names (and, if possible, IDs) of any alerts involved.

  • Logs or diagnostic files from the involved agents.

  • A clear description of the issue:

    • Are you having issues installing an agent?

    • Is an agent not checking in?

    • Is a new test not worked as expected?

    • Is a test suddenly failing and you need to know why?

    • Do you need an alert explained?

When you provide this background information, we can help you more effectively.

Sensitive Information to Avoid Sharing

Do not share sensitive information, such as passwords, API tokens, or files containing proprietary information.

These may include, but are not limited to:

  • Passwords (ThousandEyes account, Web or Voice Layer Tests, private keys for digital certificates)

  • API tokens

  • Files containing sensitive information (screenshots, transaction test scripts, packet captures, configuration files

Support Team Locations and Supported Languages

Customer Engineering team members are located in the United States, Mexico, Australia, India, Poland, and Japan.

By default, the support language is English, but it may be possible to converse with a Support person in a local language during business hours if requested. The exception is Japan, where communication in Japanese is available only via email, not chat. For customers who do not speak or write in English, a translator will be made available so they can communicate in their local language.

  • ThousandEyes documentation: A searchable documentation site

  • Webex

    • ThousandEyes Webex: To join without installing software, use the Join by browser option. The Support team will provide the meeting information.

    • Webex setup and test: Follow the directions to set up and test Webex on your computer. Perform the Webex test on the same network you will use during your meeting.

  • Sharing test data: When you submit a Support request about test results, the best way to provide us information is by sharing a snapshot link.

  • Troubleshooting Endpoint Agent issues: Problems that cannot be solved solely by inspection of log files may require a remote desktop session with a Customer Engineer to investigate the agent and the system on which the agent runs.
