Creating a Service Request (aka Help Ticket)

When you want to request help from or ask a question of UIS, or any other department using the Pacific University Services Portal (, you can enter a service request (also known as a help ticket) in the portal.  To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Services Portal (you're here now).
  2. Make sure you are logged in (you can see your name in the upper right).  If you are not logged in, many things may be invisible to you.
  3. Find the service that UIS (or another department) provides that you want to request or want help with.  You can either go to Services and browse through the categories or you can search in the search box in the top right of every page.
    1. Tip: When searching, click on the triangle to the left of the search box and choose "Service Catalog" to show only Service Catalog results.
  4. Once you have found and gone to the service catalog entry for the service you wish to request, look to the top right of the catalog entry for different ways you can request that service or help with that service (red buttons).  Some of these may link to self-help resources, but most are forms that create help tickets.
  5. We're working hard to create Services that match everything we can do for you, but if you can find the service you want, use the I need help and don't see what I need... request form.
