What happens if your API is KO?

Tests on the control API are run every 24 hours from the first successful test when creating the data offer.

If your API is K.O., as a data provider you will receive an email notification informing you that your API is inaccessible, and prompting you to take action. Your data offering will still be available on the platform.


Some examples of what can cause your API to be KO'd

* API down;

* API inaccessible;

* internal error ;

* timeout (more than 60 seconds);

* too many requests ;

* 404 not found;

Data acquirers who have already acquired the data offering will also be notified by e-mail that the API is no longer accessible, and another notification when the API is operational again.

New data acquirers will still be able to acquire the data offer, and will have access to the data when the API is available again.

Please note : 

When the data acquirer sends a request to the data provider’s API, the maximum timeout for processing the request and sending the response is 59s. Beyond this time, a timeout error message is sent.

The file download time is not taken into account.

The processing time is the time between the moment when the request has been received and the moment when the response starts to be sent.
