All Terra/FireCloud users may experience a short period of slowness and a short 30 minutes of downtime while a new permissions related update is released to the platform. Specifically, the database that hosts permissions information will be migrating to a more performant database. The release items are backend and do not require any user actions. Performance should resume as normal post the release window. The maintenance details are as follows:
Date: November 18, 2019
Start: 9:00 PM ET
End: 11:00 PM ET
All users working on Terra/FireCloud will be impacted and will experience ~30 minutes of platform downtime during the listed time frame.
This release includes migration of a database that hosts security and permissions information. Therefore, actions requiring authentication/permissions will be down and inaccessible. This means that users that are already signed-in will not be able to perform any actions on the platform and users not signed-in will be stalled until the release is complete. However, any workflows that have been submitted prior to the start of the downtime will continue to run.
Note: Users do not need to take any specific actions or modify behavior prior to or post release but we urge that work is planned accordingly.
