Connectivity Issues

Thank you for your patience. Everything is back up and running and we wanted to give you a summary of what happened.

On October 31, 2017 (yesterday) at 3:50pm PST, Slack went down for all users. This was the result of a routine internal deployment of software to our servers which unfortunately caused all of our customers to become disconnected, and left them unable to reconnect.

Once we identified the problem, we worked to scale up new hardware to process the bulk of the requests. To avoid further overloading the system when folks came back online, we used standard rate limits to allow for gradual reconnection. By 6:00pm PST, all customers had reconnected to Slack once again.

We understand that people depend on Slack to get their jobs done, and we are deeply sorry for the disruption this caused. Thank you again for your patience.
