Incident Report for Sauce Labs


Thursday September 2nd 2021, 13:09 - 22:26 UTC

What happened:

Customers running live tests were presented with a 401 error after a few minutes.

Why it happened:

The timeout settings between the different layers of our application were not in sync, so users were being redirected to a 401 screen at unexpected times.

How we fixed it:

We have synchronized the timeout values.

What we are doing to prevent it from happening again:

We are making sure that the implementation throughout the different layers matches the desired expectations and that we have proper validation in place for longer sessions.
