Create general guidelines & processes to ensure thorough fault testing of services
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Error handling paths tend to be less tested, which often leads to surprises and outages. To counteract this, we need to be especially thorough in integration testing, both before deployment, as well as during normal operation.

To ensure this happens, we should write up guidelines describing best practices, describe testing processes, and pointing out classic gotchas & ways to avoid them.

Yeah, that is probably good enough. We will look again at documentation after k8s migration is complete. This one can be closed for now.
