Incident

Trouble searching, mentioning, and messaging team members for some Grid customers

On August 16, 2019 at 5:25 a.m. PDT, we received a report that some Enterprise Grid users were unable to open a direct message, use the Quick Switcher or mention a team member in Slack. We identified that it was affecting a small number of customers who used the shared channels beta on their workspaces prior to migrating those workspaces to the same Enterprise Grid organization.

Due to a code change, we erroneously classified some users as being users from other external organizations. This is why those users could not be direct messaged or mentioned. We deployed a fix and by 12:17 p.m. PDT on August 21, 2019, the issue was fully resolved.

We have now pushed a fix for these issues Enterprise Grid members were experiencing though we will be monitoring things before we call an all-clear. Please let us know at feedback@slack.com if you continue to see issues with mentioning, searching, and messaging other members.

For anyone experiencing these issues on a mobile device, please perform a cache clear to receive this fix: Settings > Advanced > Reset cache.

Issue Summary:

On August 16, 2019 at 7:13 a.m. PDT, a significant spike in search requests caused the server to overload. This caused search to fail for all users.
