SEPA Instant Maintenance Window
Incident Report for Form3 - Status
Postmortem

During a planned maintenance period of the SEPA Instant service an issue was identified where an incorrect configuration was applied causing prolonged suspension of admission validation.

Once the root cause was identified, our network provider released a fix to ensure admissions could be successfully processed through to final state.

The original maintenance window from 03:00 - 04:00 BST was then escalated as an incident until 04:45 BST when the resolution was put in place and confirmed payments were flowing as normal.

We are working with our network provider to ensure future releases are tested against the behaviour seen during this maintenance.

We are working with our network provider to understand the root cause of the issue seen and put in place further mitigations.

Further information will be provided as part of the post mortem posted later today.
