What's the exact App name?

Make sure to have your developer on board

When you are the Owner of the App but not the technical contact we advice to get your developer in contact with us.

Have you made any recent changes?

Did you maybe recently pushed code? Or did some editor changed some setting on the App? Or was there any other change done, prior the downtime?
