Hi I've added my RHCE Certification ID to my redhat account. But when i entered the ID in verify block, it says the "The user associated with this Certification ID has not mapped his or her ID to a login". It only shows RHCSA Certification ID. I ddint see my RHCE ID in my redhat account. Can someone guide me to map the RHCE certification ID to redhat account?

Hello, Dilip.  If you have not done so, already, please open a support case for your problem.  That way, a support engineer can obtain screen shots of the problem and semi-private information for investigative purposes that would not be appropriate to post here in a public comment.

i would like to ask about config netwok on undercloud ?

The best way to get a question answered is to submit a severity 4 support case.  Otherwise, you can ask your network & undercloud question under the OpenStack product of our community discussions area.

I'm sorry to hear of your trouble, Mr. Yadav. You can use the Customer Portal's search feature (the field with the magnifying glass icon) to find possible solutions to your problem.  (My initial search turned up this document:  microdnf showing ibrhsm-WARNING ** and Found 0 entitlement certificates .)

If you do not find an answer through searching, please let us help you by opening a support case per the instructions in this FAQ.  Thanks!

Would like to be able to search better. Is there a more advanced search where I could search for strings or use logical operators like AND OR and NOT? Even having more detailed instructions on the current search ability would help -- at least I wouldn't waste time trying to tell it something it does not understand. Thank you, Don

How do i view all licenses i have purchased for my company?

Hello Octavian, in the upper left corner of the Customer Portal, you will see SUBSCRIPTIONS. Clicking this will direct you to the Red Hat Subscription Management overview page. There you will see all active subscriptions (licenses) for your organization.

The first think one may need is a button to start a chat, not pages and pages of not useful text

It sounds like you are having trouble; I am sorry to hear that.  The "not useful text" to which you mention -- are you referring to this frequently asked questions page, or the home page of

The button to start a chat with a support engineer is located fairly prominently in our support section.  Please browse to the Customer Portal home page --> Products & Services --> Support.  (Or, if you need a direct link:

How is it possible to export "Red Hat Product Errata" reports, especially the "Advisory" column can't be marked to copy?

Marc, if you have not gotten an answer to your February 2021 question by now, I encourage you to open a support case.

I gave my RHSCA Exam yesterday but exam result yet not is

Chetan, I hope you did well on your exam.  But this article is about the Customer Portal, not exams.  You will want to visit our Training & Certification page.

There, you will find a frequently asked questions list.  One of the questions under the "Take the next steps on your skills path" section is "When do I receive my official results after taking an exam?"  The answer is within 3 business days.  If you do not receive your results after that time, please contact Red Hat Certification.

After a frustrating week of issues using the portal "search" feature, I submitted a ticket. The initial response was:

> Is this issue present when using the Firefox browser shipped with RHEL?

I typically use a Linux or MacOS desktop and occasionally Android and Windows, but I do NOT have a RHEL desktop.

What browsers are supported here?

BTW, the workaround I have been using, for the past 7 days, multiple times a day, is clearing cache/cookies and trying again and I have seen this in Chromium / Chrome on both Linux / MacOS.

To directly answer your question, the list of browsers that we support using with the Red Hat Customer Portal is here:  Browser Support Policy.

I trust that our support staff will resolve your issue via the support case that you opened.

My previous comment was deleted. :-/

This should be included here as well

FWIW, my browser problem (portal search widget via Chrome) has not been resolved.

Hi Charles - Our web team is currently investigating and working on a resolution for Customer Portal Search errors. You can subscribe to receive updates on this via the Red Hat Status page:

Hello, is there a way to add an existing user to my subscription without them having to create a new username?

Hello, Cathy.  I saw that you had asked a question to this community, last month, but never got a response.  I apologize for that.

Hopefully you have reached out to Red Hat Customer Service with that question for a quicker and more authoritative response.

Even though I do not work in Customer Service, I was going to try to answer your question.  Then I realized that I would need some clarification regarding your question.  So, it is best that you just contact Customer Service, directly.

Can I hear how to delete account?

I do not think an account with Red Hat can be deleted, especially if you have active subscriptions as I see you do, Sumin.  (Note that an "account" is different that a Customer Portal login ID.)  Please contact Red Hat Customer Service to confirm.

If you are, instead, asking how to delete your Customer Portal login ID, please refer to How do I delete or deactivate my login ID for the Red Hat Customer Portal?

How to change the existing account type from personal to organizational account

I need to add a new staff member to this account, I cannot see how to do it.

Alex, you want to follow the instructions in How to create and manage users.

How can I show all the Support Articles that I have marked as "following" ???

I believe the list of documents you are following is shown by:

  1. Click on your profile's avatar (in the upper right corner of each Customer Portal page).
  2. Click "Community profile" from the drop-down area.  (Should take you to your user page.)
  3. Click on the "Notifications" tab.
  4. Click on the "Pages/Threads" left menu item.
