    CivicRec Receipt Emailing Issue Incident Report 

    January 20, 2022 

    Incident Description  

    Several CivicRec customers were reporting that receipt and waiver emails were not being sent to users upon completion of a transaction.  


    Upon investigation, the background process that generates PDF files was failing on a specific receipt. Each time the process started it would attempt to generate the same receipt rather than moving on to the next receipts in the queue. We identified the cause of the failure as a timeout limit set in the receipt generation code.  


    A fix was identified and implemented on 1/20/2022 at 6:53 am central time.  

    The timeout limit within the receipt generation code was increased. This allowed the initial problem receipt to be created, and the process could move on to the subsequent receipts. All receipts should now be sent as originally intended. We anticipate this timeout limit increase is sufficient but will further investigate ways to make the receipt generation process more resilient.
