We are investigating issues with the app sidebar disappearing affecting some customers. We will provide further information once available.
A new version of our Zendesk Application Market (ZAM) was deployed on March 30, along with an updated version of the Pathfinder app. Following that deploy, we received reports about issues with screenshots and other assets failing to load. We then rolled back the deploy to temporarily restore the assets and give us time to further investigate what happened.
Our investigation confirmed that the new version of the Pathfinder app was not compatible with the old version of the ZAM, which resulted in a bad assets being stored and prevented other apps from loading on accounts that had Pathfinder installed. We were able to fix the problem with Pathfinder, allowing us to re-deploy the ZAM and the app without incident.
