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?
You mean the recording indexes, right? (the others do seem to be updated). I hadn’t noticed this, I’ve asked about it.
We’ve found the bug and the recording index is being updated right now. Thanks for noticing!
It seems like the bug is still occurring. When searching recordings, the results page states “Last updated: 2017-02-23 14:31 UTC.”
Sigh. Thanks! Adding a ticket for this.
