At 14:40 UTC services at Form3 experienced connectivity issues to the database, this caused an intermittent degradation on payment processing impacting the FPS Direct, FPS Indirect and SEPA Instant services.
As a result of this a small number of payment admissions timed out and and were cancelled.
Payment submissions processing also became delayed during this window, with some submissions taking up to 30 minutes before processing was completed. All payments are now fully processed and show a final state.
This system fully recovered at 14:48 UTC and processing of new payments was handled without further impact.
Form3 are working with our cloud provider to put in place remediating actions to enhance the logic to handle connectivity errors more gracefully and improve alerting for connectivity issues.
