Root Cause Analysis
This incident was caused by a new Support deploy that sought to optimize the time taken to load ticket fields in Support ticket forms. The new code changed the ticket fields array to order by all ticket fields on the account instead of the intended list of ticket fields on the loaded ticket form. This resulted in the incorrect order of ticket fields that the customers were seeing on the Support ticket forms.
To fix this issue, the Zendesk Engineering team reverted the deploy that caused the issue.
- Add automated tests targeting ticket field ordering in Support ticket forms [Scheduled].
- Explore deploying similar changes in Support behind a gate in future [Scheduled].
- Investigate a more incremental Support release strategy [Scheduled].
