Is odata.stackexchange.com offline for a data refresh, or is it dead?

2 Answers 2


The Data Explorer appears to have moved to https://data.stackexchange.com/

A post about this change was published on the Stack Overflow blog.

    so it does. Shame there is not a 302 redirect from the old site. Most of the links in the meta are probably out of date now!

  • Live data, awesome! Dec 12, 2010 at 15:11
  • Just to confirm this is not some temporary thing: the links in the footers have dropped the leading "o" too.

  • @Arjan, you're right, it is behind by a day or two. Well past the last data dump, this must have been fed from the main dbase. I reckon the About page was just copied from odata. A couple of days will tell, maybe even a blog post :) Dec 12, 2010 at 16:41
  • @Hans, I guess you might just have been lucky to look at the site soon after a new import? Today its most recent column still shows the same dates as a week ago (being December 3rd up to 8th). To be continued ;-)

  • Ah, @Hans, now I am sure. According to the FAQ: At the moment it is updated shortly after every Stack Exchange Creative Commons Data Dump. Indeed, no changes in the dates since December 12th.

There was a missing redirect, the old urls to odata.stackexchange.com should redirect permanently to data.stackexchange.com

This was part of a big migration off Azure.

  • Do we get full-text indexes on the post bodies now? :)

  • Is that a hint? ;) Come to think of it, I could add a PostTypes table while I'm at it.

  • Argh... I don't have VS2010 at home. I will see what I can do with that SQL script, though.

  • Note on OData: maybe work in progress, and I'm not using/don't know OData endpoints, but I wonder if the FAQ is still correct? It claims "Yes, on the front page there are links to the OData endpoints" and I do see things like <link rel="odata.service" title="StackOverflow" href="/stackoverflow/atom"/> in the HTML. Maybe things like data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/atom are not supposed to work with a GET from a plain browser? I kind of doubt that though.
