Problem with an API link


#1

This is happening with several series from ECB/GST: the one I’m posting now is just an example.

If you navigate to the series

ECB/GST/A.BG.N.B1300.KEX.B0X13.CU.G

and ask for the API link, you get the following URL:

https://api.next.nomics.world/series?series_ids=ECB%2FGST%2FA.BG.N.B1300.KEX.B0X13.CU.G&format=json

which looks correct, but results in an “internal server error”. Weirdly enough, CSV and XSLX exports work ok.

Here’s a similar but slightly different issue with IMF/IFS. On navigating via the next.nomics web interface to IMF/IFS/M.BR.AIPMA_IX one finds “Monthly – Brazil – Economic Activity, Industrial Production, Manufacturing, Index” but “View chart” doesn’t show anything. The API link gives
https://api.next.nomics.world/series?series_ids=IMF%2FIFS%2FM.BR.AIPMA_IX&format=json

Calling the link, one gets JSON that includes

“num_found”:1

but also the warning

“Could not find TSV file corresponding to series (‘IMF’, ‘IFS’, ‘M.BR.AIPMA_IX’)”

and no actual data.

Hi @jacklucchetti,

Thanks for your feedback (and sorry for the delay)!

I created the issue #268 from your message.

I fixed the problem: now you can export data in JSON (i.e. the link you supplied works now).

Regards

Hi @acottrell,

You’re right, there is currently a problem with IMF. I’m going to work on this fetcher this iteration (cf the issue board, “current iteration” column).

I confirm that there is a problem with this particular missing TSV file.

I’ll keep you in touch with this issue.
