Root Cause Analysis
This incident was caused by a configuration error resulting in an internal service to be unreachable. This impacted the agent presence functionality, resulting in the issues experienced by our customers.
To fix this issue, we reverted to the previously deployed version, and were able to confirm the start of recovery. We continued to monitor until full recovery was observed.
- Improve logging and monitoring to more quickly and accurately identify the source of similar issues.
- Add additional testing scenarios and improve alerting for errors.
- Investigate whether smoke tests in staging can be improved to catch these issues before they are released.
