We are storing spl_id in our DB and using it as primary key in the API. But after some time, when we search it via the API, we get the following response:

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

Here is an example:

On the other end:

Not sure why that id is no longer available, but it was valid when it was first pulled from the external API into our local DB.

Any help will be appreciated.

  • I am not sure if it is a mistake or on purpose but you shouldn't post your api key in online Nov 14, 2020 at 12:28
