Trouble searching in Slack

Issue summary:
On March 25, 2021 from 4:58 a.m. to 6.14 a.m. PDT, some users were unable to search in Slack as expected. Affected users might've encountered a low number of search results or an error after searching.

We discovered traffic to some servers caused them to be overloaded, which meant some search queries didn't resolve as they should. We restarted the impacted servers to remediate the issue.

The trouble with search should now be resolved. Please try reloading Slack (press Command/Control + Shift + R).

Should you run into any issue, please contact us at
