Google Cloud Support Systems experienced an intermittent issue where case updates from the portal were failing for a brief period. Retrying the same update may have succeeded in some cases. From preliminary analysis, the root cause of the issue is a large backlog of update actions that built up in the entitlement process.

Customer Impact:

  • Less than 0.1% of Google Cloud and Google Workspace customers experienced delays in contacting, providing and getting updates to and from Google Support Agents. The issue impacted support’s ability to send updates to customers via the case management system. Following are the scenarios in which errors were received.

    • While sending emails to customers, the send action is unavailable due to errors.
    • Error while changing case ownership.
    • Error while posting comments on the case.
  • Some customers experienced an error “There was an error adding your comment. Please try again” while updating cases from the support portal.
