DonorPerfect Sync Issue

       Josh Bloomfield

There was an uncommunicated change made to the DonorPerfect API's. DonorPerfect dropped support for legacy tribute fields in their API without notice. This caused an incompatibility in communication between GiveCloud and DonorPerfect.

The DonorPerfect change happened on July 19th around 4PM EST. We have updated our code to be compatible with the change as of Jul 23rd at 11AM EST. All orders between those dates would have been affected. We ran a script to automatically patch all affected orders in all systems.

If you have any questions please contact us at support@givecloud.co.

Broken Images

       Josh Bloomfield

Some sites may have experienced broken images on their site starting Saturday at 8am EST and ending Sunday at ~2:30pm EST.

Once every 3 years, GiveCloud is required to renew a certain type of security certificate to keep our customers safe. We installed the certificate over the weekend but neglected to update a reference to the old certificate for our CDN (content delivery network) which caused broken images across all sites using our latest image processing. This did not in anyway leave any sites vulnerable to a security breach. It just simply affected the ability to link to images.

Only a handful of customers are running on our newest image processing platform would have been affected. This is why the problem went unnoticed across the vast majority of our clients and sites.

The issue has been resolved as of Sunday at 2:30PM EST.

Internal procedures have been revised to prevent this from happening again.

We are deeply and most sincerely sorry for the hiccup!
