Broken login [resolved]

There is an issue which causes a 404 error (Page not found) to be displayed after login. We're working on a fix, which should be ready shortly.

The issue affects only log-in of certain users on the UI. Jobs running inside projects are unaffected.

Update 13:01 UTC: The problem is fixed. We apologize for the inconvenience, we'll share more details in a post-mortem.


Google components authorisation issue [Post-Mortem]

Since July 26 2019 there was an issue with authorisation of our Google related components using OAuth in the EU region.

We needed to undergo a verification process of our apps by Google. This process has been recently made more strict and we weren't able to finish it before the deadline.

We are very sorry about this, we should have paid more attention to this process and the consequences related to not complying with it.

We have now successfully verified most of our Google components. We are still waiting for the verification of GMail Extractor and GMail Attachments Extractor.

Google Drive extractor authorization in EU [resolved]

We are investigating a Google Drive Extractor authorization verification issue in Keboola Connection EU.

Only creation of new configurations is affected.

We will provide an update as soon as the issue is resolved.

Update 2019-08-14: The verification issue is resolved and new configuration are working again.

Error when saving configuration Post-Mortem

Some of our users experienced errors in Keboola Connection (in both regions) yesterday when saving configurations of several components.

An error was displayed to users who tried to save their configuration between Jul 9, 2019, 12:35 CET and Jul 10, 2019, 14:18 CET.

Mainly users who have an older version of Chrome Browser or any version of the Firefox browser were affected.

The issue was caused by wrong response headers (unsupported by the mentioned browsers) being sent to a preflight request on one of our API services.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused.

Navigation Moved and Redesigned

Three weeks ago we announced the start of Keboola Connection redesign.

We're glad we can share another important update with you.

We moved the navigation from the left side to the top

This allows you to more quickly navigate within a project and should improve user experience. All sections remain the same and the content hasn't changed.

  • Project Settings can be found on the right side (by clicking on the "cogs")

  • The Project Selector is almost the same as before

  • The User Settings menu has a new home on the top right side

  • Also, we added a shortcut to the Trash, so you no longer need to navigate there through User & Settings


We hope you'll like this update as much as we do.

Support system unavailable

Zendesk is down, so our support system is inaccessible. Keboola Connection is unaffected, but if you run into anything critical, please reach us via email.

We'll update this post when we obtain more information.

Update 14:36 UTC - Looks like things are back to normal now.
