Upcoming maintenance

UK: Wednesday, June 29, 2022 (03:00 BST) until Wednesday, June 29, 2022 (07:00 BST)
Tuesday, June 28, 2022 (22:00 EST) until Wednesday, June 29, 2022 (02:00 EST)
Tuesday, June 28, 2022 (12:00 AEST) until Tuesday, June 24, 2022 (16:00 AEST)

Emails sent to targets from “Email to target” pages will be queued between these times while the direct line between two services is closed for maintenance.

There will not be any outage and advocacy pages will still process like they normally do. Once the maintenance window is completed, we will restart the back end process so that queued emails will be sent.

Recently resolved issues

June 21, 2022: Cloudflare incident (RESOLVED)

June 21, 2022 (09:06 BST / 04:06 EDT) – Cloudflare have informed us that the issue is now resolved. Please contact Support if you are experiencing any ongoing problems.

June 21, 2022 (07:43 BST / 02:43 EDT) – We are aware of an incident with the providers of our web application firewall, Cloudflare, that’s impacting service from our application at various locations globally. The issue impacts the domain that’s hosted in Cloudflare, but not our servers in AWS which are operating normally.
We are observing an interruption to the Engaging Networks application in locations where Cloudflare is still suffering connectivity problems.

You can check the Cloudflare status page for more information.

May 3, 2022: Bulk Export API issue for clients on the Canada server (RESOLVED)

May 3, 2022 (10:40 ET / 15:40 GMT)  – The hotfix has been applied and initial tests suggest the issue is resolved. Any data pulled on the 30th April, 1st May, 2nd May should be manually pulled via the Bulk Export API. Please reach out to support if you require any assistance.

No live data will have been lost due to this issue. 

May 3, 2022 (10:00 ET / 15:00 GMT) – Our Export API continues to have an issue with the staged data. We pushed a hotfix last night that did not resolve the problem. We have identified a new issue and are working on a fix for that now. We should have more information in the next few hours.

Our advice continues to be to NOT export data from the Export API service. We will be sending instructions along with how to manually download an export file once we have fixed the problem.

May 1, 2022 (09:30 ET / 14:30 GMT) – It was brought to our attention that export data did not stage properly for exports on the morning of Sunday, May 1, 2022, for clients on our Canadian server. All non-US clients (Canada, UK, Australia, Europe) are on the Canada server, along with some clients based in the US.
