I am suddenly seeing this in the production version of my app. What's going on?!

We're seeing this in our production application too. We haven't performed a deployment or made any changes. This is crippling our business critical application.

I'm tentatively going to say this has been resolved... our application has begun working again and there are no more errors in the logs.

Dropsync was failing from 6am UTC this morning, seems to be fixed now. This post saved me emailing the devs thankfully!

The endpoint is working, but I'm occasionally still getting the error. Especially in a situation where the endpoint is accessed multiple times.

 

Is there some throttling on this endpoint?

@mafurag that's probably not all servers being updated yet, and load balancing sometimes connecting you to one running older software 🙂 Let's give it some time.
