Scheduled US and EU Maintenance

There will be a maintenance period on Saturday, October 6th, 2018 from 8:00am CEST and should take less than 5 hours.

We will be upgrading component job indices and metadata databases.

All projects in and will be inaccessible during the maintenance.

Degraded Snowflake Performance (US region)

Since September 25 we're experiencing degraded Snowflake performance affecting all Snowflake operations. 

We're sorry for this inconvenience, we're working with Snowflake to fix this issue.

Update, October 8

Snowflake Engineering team has discovered and fixed the issue (waiting for an official statement from Snowflake). We're seeing operation times going back to normal.

Increased Error Rate in MySQL Extractor

We have encountered an increased error rate in MySQL Extractor after a new version release on Friday, Sept 14, 16:00 UTC.

These errors happened only when the job had a connection issue and had to reconnect to the MySQL server.

The previous version is now rolled back and we're working on a fix.

We're sorry for this inconvenience.

Update Sunday, Sept 16, 2018, 08:15 UTC 

The MySQL Extractor has been updated to resolve this issue. 

Snowflake Outage (US Region)

We have encountered an increased number of Snowflake connection errors between 04:11 UTC and 04:21 UTC. This may have caused failed storage and component jobs.

Furthermore Snowflake announced possible SQL query failures between 02:24 UTC and 03:30 UTC. 

We're sorry for this inconvenience, all systems are operational now. 

Investigating incident (US region)

We're currently investigating an incident in the US region that may have caused component job and orchestration failures today, Tuesday, Sep 11, between 02:30 UTC and 06:30 UTC.

Update 08:30 UTC

The DB storing job locks (preventing jobs from running multiple times on multiple workers) was restarted at 02:33 UTC. All connections were terminated and all component jobs and transformations running at that time were disconnected. This could lead to any or both of the following situations:

  • Failure at any time later during the job execution
  • A new parallel job execution

Any jobs started after the DB restart were not affected by this issue.

We apologize for this inconvenience. We're planning an infrastructure change to prevent such huge impact during similar situations.

Restbox Component Deprecation Announcement

The time has come and the Restbox component as we know it is now being deprecated. But do not worry, its functionality will not disappear.

The Restbox component was once a great tool to collect data from various sources that were not complex enough to deserve a dedicated extractor (or writer) and shared similar processing aspects, such as decompression, audit tools, and CSV formatting. This has now been broken up into multiple separate components and processors to achieve or exceed the required functionality.

Today we have the following components to replace the Restbox component:

Detailed documentation for most of them can be found at

The Restbox component is now available in the US region only, and, as of this announcement, no new configurations can be created. The component will be supported until November 1, 2018 when it will be finally shut down. Please migrate your configurations to one of the above-mentioned components. 

If you have any trouble migrating your configurations, please do not hesitate to contact us using the support button in your project.
