file_search api seems broken

by mcoyne » Thu Nov 17, 2022 1:47 pm America/New_York

I just noticed that my scripts requesting checksums from the file_search api were returning no results. Looking at the output the file_search url appears to be returning "404 Not Found". I think it was working yesterday. I also checked the file search web page (https://oceandata.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/api/file_search/) and that is not working either.

Thanks!

Michael

There are several. None are working at the moment. Here is one example:

wget --no-check-certificate --post-data="dtype=L3m&addurl=0&results_as_file=1&search=*8D*SST.sst.4km.nc&cksum=1" -O - https://oceandata.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/api/file_search

Hi,

We observe the same pb, and we suspect that the API now returns an error if none product is found by the search, example:
this one fails because VIIRSN was down on this specific day and there is no products:

Code: Select all

wget --no-check-certificate --post-data="sensor=viirs&sdate=2022-08-01&edate=2022-08-01&dtype=L2&search=SNPP_VIIRS.*.L2.OC*.nc&std_only=1&cksum=1&results_as_file=1&format=txt" -O - https://oceandata.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/api/file_search
but I think before the behavior was different: there was no error in this case and we just get an empty list.

On our side we scan new products 5 days per 5 days and since the recent changes we get errors for periods with no products.

Have a nice day,
Julien

Thank you. It does appear to be working again now.

Julian,
It is two different issues. While both issues are related to changes we made, they are not the same. Michael's issue was resolved.
