Looks like the device end point for adverse events is not returning latest data or I'm missing something.

As on today (Sept 16th) when I trigger the below endpoint: https://api.fda.gov/device/event.json?search=date_received:[20200801+TO+20200831]&limit=1000

{ "error": { "code": "NOT_FOUND", "message": "No matches found!" } }

However when I try the same via the website, we can see 500 records. Refer image below for the filters Used while doing the search.

enter image description here

Sample Result: https://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/cdrh/cfdocs/cfmaude/detail.cfm?mdrfoi__id=10475104&pc=QBJ

Can someone help me understand what is happening here pls ? Thanks in Advance.

openFDA is experiencing some technical difficulties with updating the Device Event dataset, which is why it is slightly behind MAUDE. We will fix it shortly and report back once done.

UPDATE: The Device Event dataset in openFDA has been updated and this issue has been resolved.
