On Thursday June 27th, 2019 at 5:00 AM (U.S. EST) Agilent Site Reliability Engineers will be working with our Network Service Provider to upgrade the API server for the North American instance. The entire process is expected to be 1 hour, and iLab customers using the API for any features may experience a decrease in performance during this time. More information can be found on the iLab Status Site. For any questions, please contact iLab Support at or by clicking on the 'Help' link at the top of your account page.
