Issue sending replies
Incident Report for AppFollow Status Page

Incident Description: On the 19th and 20th of September, we experienced a bug that impacted our service and caused disruption for our customers, preventing them from replying to reviews.

Incident Timeline:

  1. Replies Endpoint Modification: Complexities emerged during endpoint changes.
  2. Unidentified Processing Bug: A bug went unnoticed due to testing limitations.
  3. Simultaneous Disruptions: Two disruptions affecting replies functionality emerged at the same time:
  • App Store side, which required App Store Connect users to accept an updated agreement on their end.
  • Internal Bug: Endpoint changes caused the issue.

Key Takeaways and Plan: * Adjustment of deployment processes * Enhance monitoring and metrics. * Implement real-time alerts. * Enforce vigilant monitoring.
