This post follows the first Technical Notice: IATI’s Datastore to be integrated in a new unified single platform.
Planned downtime on Datastore API and Query Builder
As part of important work to integrate the IATI Datastore into IATI’s new unified single platform, there will be planned downtime of its services from 1 July 2021. This integration work will commence over the quieter summer months and all activities are due to be completed before the end of the year.
Alternative options for accessing IATI data
During this period of downtime, users can access IATI data using the following options:
- iati.cloud: The Datastore’s external supplier, Zimmerman has continued to make the Query Builder and API available via their platform: https://iati.cloud. For information about these services, please contact Zimmerman directly.
- IATI Datastore Classic: Code4IATI has restored and updated the original version of the IATI Datastore: https://datastore.codeforiati.org/.
A full list of IATI data tools provided by IATI and the IATI community is updated regularly and available on IATI Connect.
If you require additional support to access the IATI data you need, please contact IATI’s friendly Technical Team via the IATI Helpdesk: [email protected]. Alternatively, bring your data queries to IATI’s monthly Data Use Drop-In Sessions and get on-the-spot support from the IATI Secretariat or from other data users who join the session. The next session is scheduled for 26 July 2021 12:30 - 13:30 (UTC).
Launching the Datastore on IATI’s single unified platform
IATI’s Secretariat looks forward to launching the Datastore on IATI’s single unified platform and will continue to post updates on IATI’s website as this project progresses. This work is essential for transforming IATI’s siloed set of technical tools and products to a single, integrated system architecture.
For any questions about the IATI Datastore or other IATI services, please email IATI’s Helpdesk: [email protected].
