What is Cisco Support Assistant Extension (CSAE)?

Cisco Support Assistant Extension (CSAE) is the first Cisco Secure Development Lifecycle(CSDL) approved extension publically available in the Chrome store. CSAE aims to bring Cisco Support closer to the Cisco product and portals and extend Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) Intellectual Capital directly inside the Cisco product portals to create a frictionless self-support experience for our customers.
