Apple’s solution for users configure actions without depending too much on Siri In iOS it’s called Shortcuts, which also doesn’t allow us to share our creations with other people through iCloud. Well, until a few hours ago, all the shortcuts available in iCloud stopped being available.
Twitter and Reedit are filling up with complaints from many users that when clicking on a link on a shortcut stored in iCloud to access and download it, it returns an error message stating that he did not find it. Apple has not yet commented on the matter.
All @macstoriesnet Shortcuts Archive has broken links right now None of the links to my hundreds of shortcuts are broken.
I * seriously * hope Apple has a quick fix for this. https://t.co/MGwB1bRhHD https://t.co/5BMhhbdoqC pic.twitter.com/fbbxuHzW2V

Websites like MacStories, hence created a lot of shortcuts they claim that they cannot access all of its content. None of the links work and so far they haven’t found a solution other than to wait for Apple to fix the problem.
The reasons why the shortcuts may have stopped working are probably due to any changes made by Apple to the servers, modification that removed access to shortcuts.
On the Apple service page It is not shown that at this time, there is an impact on the servers, so it is likely that we will have to wait a few days to be able to access the shortcuts stored in iCloud again.
Shortcuts, in addition to allowing us to automate tasks, also allow us to perform actions with connected devices that they are not compatible with HomeKit.
Anything you can think of to create a keyboard shortcut is possible as long as you have patience and resources To be able to achieve it, resources that you can find on the internet.
