Observations=true not always respected


#1

When using the v22 API with path /series/provider_code/dataset_code/series_code_mask
it seems that the observations=true flag is not being respected. Here’s a specific example:

https://api.db.nomics.world/v22/series/IMF/CPI/Q.FR+DE+BE.PCPIT_IX?format=json&observations=true

Three CPI series are found – for France, Germany and Belgium – but the returned JSON contains no observations.

Hi @acottrell

Before investigating further I would suggested that you use “observations=1” which is what we do from the UI.

But perhaps the problem is specific to this dataset.

I’m going to check and tell you.

Thanks for your report anyway.

@acottrell

The link you provide seems to work now.

We experienced a server failure 2 days ago. We switched to our pre-production server to provide the service. This could explain your problem.

The server was back on tracks and we switched back the traffic to it.

You should have to wait a couple of hours maximum for the DNS (domain name system) to propagate the information.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

If you experience any further problem let us know.

@cbenz: Thanks, I can confirm that this is now working again, the observations are included OK.
