# odata access from data.stackexchange.com down

The OData endpoint provided at data.stackexchange.com has been down for the last few days. I have searched for information about the outage, but I can't find any reason or explanation. Can someone shed some light on the situation?

To be specific, every query I make gives the result "Page not found", with a picture of Edgar Codd. Example: https://data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/atom/Users

• Data Explorer recently moved, and I suspect that rewrite required for the OData endpoint to work isn't operating correctly. Out of curiosity, what is your use case for the OData endpoint? – Tim Stone Jul 23 '13 at 15:57
• Thanks for explaining. So I hope it will come back up? My use case is looking up stackexchange users by different criteria, usually email hash. As far as I can see, I can't do this with the stackexchange API. – Greg Jul 23 '13 at 17:36

1. The connection string was wrong (SEDE assume it ends in ;, it doesn't anymore)
