We've not seen any recurrence of this issue in our own monitoring now for over 3 hours (earlier today we had been seeing this issue occur several times each hour).
Whilst confirmation and detailed postmortem information on this incident from Cloudflare is scarce at this time, we believe that they have now resolved their issue(s).
We will post more information here in the coming hours should this be forthcoming from Cloudflare. In the meantime, we will consider this matter resolved.
We apologize on behalf of Cloudflare if you've been impacted by this intermittent connectivity issue earlier today.
Should you continue to experience any 502, 520, or 522 errors in the coming hours when accessing your cloud hosted MIDAS system, please do screenshot these errors and send them to us so that we can forward the details on to Cloudflare.

We continue to monitor the situation. Whilst there is still no indication of an issue on Cloudflare's dedicated Service Status site, a similar issue was listed on their site last week.
We are reaching out to Cloudflare, and will provide further updates here shortly.

Our hosting provider reports a number of their customers are reporting issues with Cloudflare today. Cloudflare's own dedicated Service Status site, currently lists "No incidents reported today", however they have been known to be slow to update their service status site in the past.
Our hosting provider confirms that there are currently no network issues at their end, and that they are of the belief that this is a temporary Cloudflare issue.
We continue to monitor the situation and will provide further updates in due course.
