Emergency: A non-schedule period of maintenance that is required due to issues with the system.
Service Operations: A downtime scheduled due to additional service requests, such as copying a system, or a request for a test system.
To see more information about a maintenance schedule item, simply highlight one of the items in the list. The details are automatically displayed at the bottom of the content area.
We can also restrict the information which is shown by choosing Productive, Non-Productive, or All Systems, entering dates in the Date From/To fields and then clicking Go.
The default selection is usually for the current month and productive systems.
In the Service Control Center work center, the System Availability view shows the average availability of your productive system and also gives details on any downtimes.You can view the data in chart or table format. To switch formats, simply click on the table or chart icon in the top left corner of the embedded report.

There are three contact types:
•IT Contact: A contact person in your organization who gives you system information and to whom you report downtimes.
Note: You maintain the notification subscriptions of IT contact persons in the Cloud System Notification Subscriptions Tool (CSNS).
Without a notification subscription in the CSNS, the IT contact person will not receive any notification.
•SAP Store Buyer: A contact person in your organization who is authorized to procure solutions on your behalf in the SAP Store.
During initial implementation, you can assign service agents as contacts of the type SAP Store Buyer to allow them to purchase partner solutions. Once employees are available, we strongly recommend that you change the contact assignment to an employee assignment. After go-live, we recommend that you only assign employees as SAP Store buyers.
•Commercial Contact: A contact person in your organization who is authorized to order services from SAP Cloud for Customer, such as purchasing additional licenses.
You can view this details by accessing to the Service Control Work Center.
Note: There must always be at least one commercial contact , one IT contact and one SAP Store Buyer assigned in the Contact Details view.
Here is the list of orders you have purchased. Under each order, you can see the list of eligible systems assigned.
For every new order placed, a C4C customer is entitled to a test system and a productive system. Initially one test system is provided and self-service is provided to customer for requesting/triggering other systems as required.
In case you find any discrepancies(like multiple productive systems in single VB order/ES) from ideal situation in your orders, please refer this guide and contact your Account Executive/Customer Success Manager/Customer Engagement Executive.
VB Order: For each contract that the customer signs, one VB order is created, based on their internal organization requirements.
Entitlement Set(ES): Entitlement Set groups the customer systems to individual VB order.
ES will display the eligibility and existing/used status of systems in that particular VB order.
Entitlement Status: Entitlement Status shows customers' eligibility for systems.
Provided status means the customer has already triggered the request for that system and has already been provided.
Open status means the customer is eligible to request a system from another system that belongs to same VB order and Entitlement set.
