#1

The Indexed Search Syntax page states that search indexes are updated every 3 hours. However, when performing an arbitrary search, the result page states, “Last updated: 2016-12-22 16:42 UTC” meaning that the indexes haven’t been updated in three months. As a result, when using the API, I cannot retrieve songs that have been released since this date. Why haven’t the search indexes been updated, and when will the they be updated? Also, until then, how can I access the most recent entries without having to mirror the database locally?


#2

You mean the recording indexes, right? (the others do seem to be updated). I hadn’t noticed this, I’ve asked about it.


#3

We’ve found the bug and the recording index is being updated right now. Thanks for noticing!


#4

It seems like the bug is still occurring. When searching recordings, the results page states “Last updated: 2017-02-23 14:31 UTC.”


#5

Sigh. Thanks! Adding a ticket for this.
