StackStorm Partners Program

The Partners Program has been created to recognize companies and organizations that provide ongoing assistance to the open source StackStorm project. This support from the Partners and the community has enabled StackStorm to improve and enhance the product. This partnership program provides guidelines on the eligibility criteria to become a project partner and also highlights the benefits the partners can derive from being a part of the community.

For the list of current project partners visit the StackStorm Partners page.

How to become a Partner?

An email should be sent to moc.mrotskcatsnull@srentrap with a proposal for partnership. In your email proposal, please include the following statement:

On behalf of <PARTNER NAME> ("Participant"), I agree that Participant will comply with the StackStorm Partners Program requirements published at https://stackstorm.com/partners-program/ and Linux Foundation Policies published at https://lfprojects.org/policies/, as updated from time to time, and agree to not hold StackStorm liable for any monetary, business, or brand related damages or loss during and after our participation in the Partners Program.

Warm Regards,

This proposal will be reviewed by StackStorm and discussed with the prospective partner.


How and when do partnerships end?

No party makes any Guarantees or Warranties of any kind. StackStorm or the partner may choose to end the partnership at any time. A few examples:

  • The equipment that was provided is withdrawn
  • The support, contribution or service is no longer delivered
  • Violations of the StackStorm or Linux Foundation Policies, Code of Conduct, etc
  • The goals of the partners no longer coincide with the goals of StackStorm

When the partnership ends, the web page entries related to the partner are removed in the current listing, while the archive entries in former years remain.


Are there other ways my organization can contribute to StackStorm?

StackStorm is an Open Source project with a rich ecosystem that operates under the Linux Foundation governance. We welcome everyone to help and support the project through maintenance, code contributions, development, providing services, donations, co-marketing, organizing events.

If you have another idea that does not suit the above criteria to be recognized as an Official StackStorm Partner, please Contact Us at moc.mrotskcatsnull@srentrap.
