Why was github actions down for 10 hours?


There was an incident on the 18.05 which took github actions down for 10 hours: GitHub Status - Incident with GitHub Actions

Normally when working with google cloud, they provide a short post about the root cause of the issue. For example here: Google Cloud Status Dashboard

Here in github actions i did not see a post about the root cause. Does anyone know what the root cause was? This would help the customers trust.



Hi @david-gang :wave: Apologies for the delay here.

I have added your feedback to an internal tracking issue discussing how we document incidents.

At present, you can certainly read more here:

And if you have concerns, you can of course post them here or open a ticket with support.
