Is there a way to know when and what new data set is added to a specific endpoint like drugs/events?

we have last modified for a particuklar endpoint, but I want see what all new data is added recently

There's no way to do so through API querying. The best way to track this would be to download the data daily and compare to previous results.

  • I am dealing with drugs/drugsfda, I can redownload the data on daily basis, but is there a way to compare the new data with my old data ? Or I just have to replace the old data with my new one Commented Sep 10, 2023 at 4:33
  • That would a programmatic issue to work out with however you're storing the data and beyond our purview. Commented Jan 23 at 20:49
