Zendesk is happy to announce improved error handling, which provides better alerting for your integrations using the channels framework
What is changing?
We have updated our Channels Framework schema to better report on integration errors related to external ID, this will now not only alert the integration but provide an error on the ticket for the agent to review and provide the error to the integration third party or team responsible.
The agent’s reply will be added to the ticket and posted to the reporter, but the response from the third-party integrator will be counted as a client error and recorded appropriately.
Why is Zendesk making this change?
Zendesk strives to be a good partner for integrations of all types and wishes to ensure all errors are managed and reported to the correct parties and improve the user experience for not only Zendesk customers but the partners who wish to integrate with us.
What do I need to do?
If you see this error pop up for any of your integrations, copy the error from the tickets event view and send it to the integration provider, who should be able to provide more in-depth detail. Zendesk will also send a record of the error in response to the API call that generated the error.
