Migration of maps to upload caches resulted in query parameters being stripped, breaking some subservices (task T166735).


This is a step by step outline of what happened to cause the incident and how it was remedied.


  • There is never enough monitoring.
  • An important change was considered ops-only, was never communicated to its product team, neither beforehand for coordination nor afterwards for a quick check that everything still works.


Explicit next steps to prevent this from happening again as much as possible, with Phabricator tasks linked for every step.

  • Yes Done Add geoshapes and geolines to monitoring spec (task T166776)
  • Yes Done Services need external monitoring (task T167048)
  • ☒N Not done Kartographer should handle external data errors gracefully (task T148883)
