Intermittent External Object Error

edited May 7, 2020 in Questions
This error started popping up recently on any page Standard Skuid page(see screenshot) or custom developed Skuid page. After refreshing page 2-3 times it goes away.

There is no extra information available, however from the error description it seems Salesforce is notifying internally to Skuid.

I have Skuid version: 12.2.14 installed
Salesforce org is on Spring'20

    Good morning Bhupendra, thanks for alerting us of this issue.  
    • What Salesforce instance is this org on?
    Other clients have been reporting the same issue and I believe there may be an underlying incident occurring with some Salesforce CS instances.  We've escalated this issue appropriately and will keep you posted as soon as we know more.

    Hi Bhupendra, thanks for the quick reply. Salesforce did just report an ongoing performance degradation So far NA44 is the only instance listed as affected but they will update it as they confirm other instances are affected.  

    On the Skuid side we'll keep you posted when we have more information and once we've confirmed the cause of the issue you're experiencing.
