Incident

Slackbot is not responding to messages written in Japanese

Technical Summary:

On Jan 14th at 12:46 PM PST, a code change was made to how Slackbot fetches Help Center articles. Customers with locales set to Japanese failed to get proper responses in their DM with Slackbot. Instead, they were sent the generic error "何を言われたかわかりませんでした。ごめんなさい" ("I'm sorry, I don't understand!")

We deployed a fix for the issue at 2:00 PM PT on Jan 16th and restored Slackbot's functionality for all users.
