GMO GlobalSign Incident Report - HTTP 503 errors returned by Atlas authentication service

Posted Oct 12, 2022 - 15:40 UTC

All services have been restored to normal function. The investigation by the teams showed that a corrupted database index affected the performance of the system for some customers, leading to intermittent 503 errors, while others were unaffected by the issue. The index was re-created and this process completed as of 15:30 UTC, resolving the issue across all the affected customers.

The Infrastructure and Development teams are continuing to work the issue. At the current time a small number of customers are affected. We will continue to update.

The Infrastructure team believe they have identified the issue and have put a workaround in place. Some calls to /login are taking longer than usual to complete but most customers should be seeing successful authentication now.
The team are continuing to work on the root cause and we will continue to post updates.
