Making an Appeal on a Submission

In Beta: Making an appeal on a submission is in a Beta phase and thus it is not available for all researchers. For more information, send an email to support@bugcrowd.com.

Researchers can opt to have their submissions reviewed by a Senior Application Security Engineer if they do not agree with the state, priority, or reward that has been provided. This applies to any submission made within the last year through the Bugcrowd platform, even those that have multiple collaborators. An email notification is sent to Bugcrowd and the request for appeal is assigned to a different Triage Team member at Bugcrowd.

In Beta: You can make only one appeal per submission and the submission state must be Unresolved, Resolved, Wont Fix, Not Reproducible, Not Applicable, or Out of Scope.

To make an appeal:

  1. Open the submission for which you want to make an appeal.

  2. On the right-side, in Appeals section, click Make an appeal.
