Admin page performance fix (versions 3.3.0-3.3.6)

** this post was previously titled ‘Fixes to issue: “Check app location is running very frequently in admin portal”’. The title was changed to reflect the effect of the bug on the Admin page.

Hello all,

Today it came to our attention that there is a bug in the admin portal where the “Check app location” workflow is running very frequently.

In versions 3.3.0-3.3.6 (apps created since February 26) this is an issue.

This causes slowness in the admin portal, and thus is annoying to admin users, as well as using up some app capacity each time it runs.

EDIT:
To avoid confusion, I’ve removed the first solution I found, since it was more complicated than the solution in my reply below. Thank you!

Following up here:

The above solution only dealt with the symptoms of this specific bug. While looking deeper after implementing that solution, I found that the solution to the root cause of this bug is much simpler: delete this workflow.

The admin_options reusable, and everything inside it, was constantly being reset. This helps fix this issue and may mitigate other issues we were not aware of.

Thank you,
Chris
