Defender for Endpoint has recently upgraded the support process to offer a more modern and advanced support experience.

The new widget allows customers to:

  • Find solutions to common problems
  • Submit a support case to the Microsoft support team


It’s important to know the specific roles that have permission to open support cases.

At a minimum, you must have a Service Support Administrator OR Helpdesk Administrator role.

For more information on which roles have permission, see, Security Administrator permissions. Roles that include the action microsoft.office365.supportTickets/allEntities/allTasks can submit a case.

For general information on admin roles, see About admin roles.

Access the widget

Accessing the new support widget can be done in one of two ways:

  1. Clicking on the question mark on the top right of the portal and then clicking on “Microsoft support”:

    Microsoft support.

  2. Clicking on the Need help? button in the bottom right of the Microsoft 365 Defender portal:

In the widget you’ll be offered two options:

  • Find solutions to common problems
  • Open a service request

Find solutions to common problems

This option includes articles that might be related to the question you may ask. Just start typing the question in the search box and articles related to your search will be surfaced.

How can we help?

In case the suggested articles aren’t sufficient, you can open a service request.
