  • IBM Cloud Platform
  • US South
  • INC0115801
  • Description
    Users may be experiencing intermittent timeouts for requests to Cloud Foundry applications. Usage of the IBM Cloud console may also experience some slowness.
    The operations team is aware of the issue and currently investigating.

    UPDATE 2018-05-29 16:50 UTC: Fixes are being applied to address application routing issues. During the maintenance application, custom domain management APIs will be unavailable for up to one hour. The operations team is continuing to address all issues and we apologize for any inconveniences.

    UPDATE 2018-05-29 20:35 UTC: Issues affecting intermittent access to IBM Cloud Cloud Foundry applications and services have been addressed. Routes are responding normally and the issue is resolved.


    UPDATE 2018-05-29 22:00 UTC: It has been identified that some custom domain application routes are continuing to experience routing issues. In many cases, the cause has been identified to be a DNS A record configuration which points to a specific, single IP address. Custom domain configuration should use CNAME records pointing to as documented at
    An additional possible issue may involve cached DNS entries for applications leveraging a reverse proxy in front of the application. If an application deployment uses a solution which may leverage cached DNS data, a restart of the application may address any routing issues.

    If there are any ongoing issues which are not addressed by the scenarios mentioned above, please open a support ticket for further assistance.
