2023-May 16 Service Incident 3
Incident Report for Sauce Labs


Sunday May 14th 2023, 07:44 - Tuesday May 16th 2023, 15:15 UTC

What happened:

A change made to the default direct domains configuration caused a failure for customers who had specified their own direct domains when starting a new Sauce Connect tunnel. This resulted in either a tunnel that wasn’t working or a tunnel that would fail to start with a cryptic error message.

Why it happened:

A change in the default direct domains configuration conflicted with existing customer settings, causing their Sauce Connect tunnels to fail and shut down after startup. 

How we fixed it:

We reverted the change to the previous configuration. 

What we are doing to prevent it from happening again:

We deployed a longer-term fix for this issue that validates the combination of customer domains and default domains that are put in place. We are also adding more testing and monitoring to the proxy service that was at the center of this incident.
