Heatmap creation and signup unavailable
Incident Report for Hotjar

On 25th July, 2020 at 5:30 UTC our engineers identified an issue with Heatmap creation and Signups not working correctly.

What happened?

New users were unable to complete signup, while existing users were unable to create new heatmaps.

Why did this issue occur?

After an earlier database update, an extension to the database was not properly loaded and prevented the table for new heatmap data to be created. During signup we automatically create an initial heatmap and since this failed the entire signup failed.

What will we do to prevent this from happening in the future?

We will hold an internal postmortem to identify potential improvements.
