To obtain a Link ID:

  • Resellers must fill out the Avaya application located at http://avaya.force.com/PartnerRegistrationForm.
  • Resellers will receive an email after submitting the application that will include an Application ID, which can be used as a temporary Avaya Link ID for up to 28 days.  This will allow purchases to made for the Open Networking products until they are approved and receive a Link ID.
  • Once the approval process is complete, new partners will receive a welcome email from Avaya with the permanent Link ID.
