Final Status: We’ve confirmed that the provisioning backlog has been processed and the incident is resolved.
User Impact: End users were not affected by this issue. In earlier stages of the incident, administrators may have experienced delays when provisioning new and existing subscriptions. Affected administrators would have seen their subscriptions stuck in the “Finalizing” status. In the latter stages of the event, impact was isolated to administrators whose provisioning requests were stuck in the provisioning backlog. New provisioning requests were unaffected by this incident while the provisioning backlog was processed.
Scope of Impact: A few customers reported this issue, and our analysis indicated that any new tenants were potentially affected.
