Microsoft fixes data loss within Bing Webmaster Tools API


Microsoft has fixed a data loss issue within the Bing Webmaster Tools API that resulted in a week’s loss of data. That data has now been backfilled and restored and can now be accessed through the Bing Webmaster Tools API.

The dates. Sometime after March 3, 2023, the Bing Webmaster Tools API stopped showing data. Glenn Gabe reported the issue to Fabrice Canel of Microsoft on March 17th. By March 20th the API started to once again show new data but it was missing a week’s worth of data, there was a data gap. Then on March 27th, Fabrice from Microsoft said they were able to fix that missing data and it was now available for download in the API.

Why we care. If you use the Bing Webmaster Tools API with your internal software or third-party software, then you will want to ensure all the data you expect to be there is there. If not, you may want to manually rerun some of the commands to bring in any data that may have not come over due to the bug.

More details. Here is the trail of tweets related to this bug:
