All Bitrix24 On-Premise (self-hosted) version owners with a valid commercial license can contact Bitrix24 Support and get qualified assistance straight in their Bitrix24 account.
All you need to do is to add a special chat-bot to Bitrix24 messenger.
Connect the Bitrix24 Support chatbot
Open Control Panel > Settings > System Settings > Module Settings > Bitrix24 Chat Bots and tick Support Bitrix24 on-premise editions.
Initially, the chatbot may not have a connection with the Bitrix24 servers, therefore it's installed as a regular chatbot.
Next, you need to activate the Support for Bitrix24 On-premise editions chatbot.
While activating the chatbot, the servers' availability is checked from both sides - both from the client's network and from the Bitrix24 server. Also, it is checked that the license is active and that the open channel is configured correctly. If there are any issues detected, they will be displayed in the connection window.
After connecting the chatbot, you can contact the Bitrix24 Support in the chat. You can find the chatbot on the list of your contacts.
Issues with connection
Public site address resolves to a local host - this error means that the Website public address contains the local address that is not accessible from the Internet. To connect the Bitrix24 Chat Bots module, the Bitrix24 account needs to be accessible from the Internet.
Network connectivity error can occur for different reasons. The possible reason is that the Bitrix24 server or the account itself is not available. In addition, the error can be caused by long timeouts or problems with the SSL certificate.
This website's license is invalid - your license is expired. The Bitrix24 Support Chat works only for valid commercial license key owners.
The message was not delivered because the user accepts messages only from users on their contact list- for the chat to work correctly, the administrator who contacted the support must be added to the Employees user group and become a member of one of the departments in the company structure.

Please use the link in your email again to continue working", then most likely you have restricted read access to /pub/ directory for unauthorized users. Check in the administrative interface of the Structure Management - Files and folders section to ensure that there is a read permission for /pub/ directory and all attached files for the group All users (including unauthorized users). If the permissions were changed at the server level, you should also change them for the server administrator.
