On July 27, 2023, at 11:30 am PT, our Engineering monitoring alerted that there were issues concerning SendGrid and Braze+SendGrid Universal Email integrations. We immediately began investigating the incident and determined that this was not an issue within the Branch platform, but with the underlying Email Service Sender, SendGrid/Twilio. We reported the issue to SendGrid/Twilio and have been in communication with them. During the incident window, some deep links were not redirecting as intended, but would have redirected to the app-level desktop fallback if configured so end-customers would have seen limited errors. As of 10 am PT on July 28, 2023, both the Branch, Braze, and SendGrid teams are unable to reproduce this issue. To ensure a comprehensive resolution, we have formally escalated this matter with SendGrid/Twilio, and we are awaiting additional information about the incident from them. We will be sharing additional information as soon as possible.
