Sporadic 502 errors graphql api


Nowadays we’re seeing a lot of 502 errors using the graphql for a query that was running ok before.

Exception Github https://api.github.com/graphql - 502 =>




   "message":"Something went wrong while executing your query. This may be the result of a timeout, or it could be a GitHub bug. Please include `0840:254B:B8EFD2:19B1EFF:5BE03AF1` when reporting this issue."]


Some help would be very appreciate.



We had been seeing these as well. We ended up just retrying on 5xx errors with an exponential backoff.

Ok thanks  for the suggestion

Is anyone else still experiencing this? I was running queries smoothly yesterday but have seen a lot more 502 errors today. I’ve implemented retries on the 502 errors, which has largely solved the issue, but just curious if how widespread this is/if anyone has any info.
