Degraded Platform Performance
Incident Report for Salsify

At 11 AM EST Friday January 17, 2020, Salsify received an influx of events that caused significant delays to key Salsify services.Although most of the Salsify application continued to function as expected, customers experienced:

  • Out-of-date product and asset search results
  • Delayed workflow triggers and completion
  • Delayed email notifications
  • Long-running imports and publications
  • Discrepancies on product list pages

Our engineering team worked quickly to mitigate the issue. At 3 AM EST Saturday January 18, 2020, Salsify processed the remaining backlog of events, bringing our system back to a stable state. There was no data loss during the incident.
