On August 24th, 2020 from 5:03 UTC to 5:14 UTC, Zendesk Support customers on Pod 23 may have experienced errors when using Search.
05:49 UTC | 22:49 PT
We encountered a brief issue with search functionality in Support between 05:03 - 05:14 UTC impacting all accounts on Pod 23. Users attempting to search would not have received any results during this period. The issue has since been fully resolved.
Root Cause Analysis
This incident was caused by a misconfigured staging environment in Pod 23. The new environment was intended to be “non-live” however the roles for the new stage were configured incorrectly causing a Search service deploy to be rolled out to the live cluster. This erroneous deploy caused the issues some customers experienced on Pod 23.
While our team was monitoring this deploy, they noticed the errors on Pod 23 and proceeded to fix the deployment stage and roll out the correct deploy to production to fix the issue.
- Consolidate standardization of deployment process across all projects in Search service [Scheduled].
