Hi @etai87e 👋🏼

Yesterday we discovered a bug related to the health status reporting in the control panel. Some apps were incorrectly displayed as “Unhealthy” even though they were healthy and there was nothing actually wrong.

This has been resolved since — please take a look at the control panel again and let us know if you’re still seeing any issues.
