Resolved - This incident has been resolved.
May 17, 08:42 AEST
Monitoring - The GovCMS Service Desk has now changed email configuration so that all emails will be sent from govcms.support@salsadigital.com.au. The SPF configuration on this address meets stricter email client requirements, where a problem was encountered previously.

The issue will continue to be monitored throughout the week.

May 14, 14:37 AEST
Update - The GovCMS team has confirmed that stricter mail servers are rejecting some inbound Service Desk emails based on the SPF settings in the Freshdesk mail server.

We are working with Freshdesk to update the mail server settings. Alternatively, we may switch to a different sending address for Service Desk emails.

May 13, 18:35 AEST
Identified - Emails from GovCMS Support are bouncing for some customers today. We are working on the issue.

Advice
You are invited to preview how the PHP 8.1 changes will affect your website.

We have listened to requests and the opportunity to preview how the PHP 8.1 upgrade will affect your website has been extended to 6 May 2022.

You will need to login to the dashboard using your GitLab credentials to determine the URL for your preview. This will not count towards your maximum number of environments in your project. Your URL will look similar to https://nginx-preview-update-MYPROJECT.govcms7.amazee.io. You will need to submit a service desk ticket if you require access to your dashboard.

Reminder: non-production feature branches may take a few minutes to load.

You will need to prioritise and resource the checking of your site, as this will alert you to any issues when PHP 8.1 is applied. You should check the functionality of your site including theme, content types, webforms and integration with external services. This PHP change will not affect your site's content.

If there is functionality in the preview feature branch not working consult your developers and if required, advise the GovCMS Service Desk

If you have any concerns, raise a ticket at https://www.govcms.support
