Root Cause Analysis
This incident was caused by a code change that sought to optimize timestamps in the Support frontend. A specific dependency in the code caused specific functions to loop resulting in the symptoms customers observed (e.g. tickets unable to load, submit or close).
To fix this issue, the code change was identified and reverted.
