Office 365 transient error 

This outage prevents users from logging into their email and accessing Microsoft Teams,, Power Platform, and Dynamics365.

Microsoft initially stated that they identified a change that caused the outage, but after rolling back the change, the outage was not resolved.

“We’ve identified that reverting the recent change did not alleviate impact to Microsoft services as expected. We’re working to explore additional options for mitigation,” states Microsoft’s page.

Update 9/28/20 08:40 PM EST: Microsoft has started to reroute traffic through different servers and some users have reported being able to login again.

“We’ve determined that a specific portion of our infrastructure is not processing authentication requests in a timely manner. We’re pursuing mitigation steps for this issue. In parallel, we’re rerouting traffic to alternate systems to provide further relief to the affected users.”

This is a developing story and will be updated as information becomes available.
