Root Cause Analysis
This incident was caused by a planned backfill that was intended to remove voice recordings on deleted Zendesk accounts in order to fulfill voice recording compliance obligations. Due to a scoping issue in the backfill code, some voice recordings for a small number of active accounts were also removed.
To fix this issue, our team implemented a solution in our recording service that recovered the recordings that were inadvertently removed during the incident.
- Additional monitors and alerts for fetch recording failures.
- Review and improve recording delete and recovery mechanisms.
