Hey all,

I've been having some issues with my Stargate SG-1 files for the past several weeks. It started a few weeks ago when the s1e1 episode of the DVD order stopped showing up in the API.

Code: Select all

/series/72449/episodes/query?dvdSeason=1&dvdEpisode=1

Code: Select all

{
    "Error": "No results for your query: map[DVD_episodenumber:1 DVD_season:1]"
}
This same request string works as expected to retrieve episode 2, and episode one is visible on the web interface. Requesting this episode ID (7497869) directly via the API also results in an error

Code: Select all

/episodes/7497869

Code: Select all

{
    "Error": "ID: 7497869 not found"
}
Some time in the past week, the same thing started happening for two other episodes in the DVD order:

s07e21 (ID: 7581079)
s08e01 (ID: 7581082)

I assume this is part of the ongoing clean up effort happening, which is great, but how can I access the updated information via the API? I'm getting the same behavior across a custom Python script, Postman, and the swagger interface. I'm about out of troubleshooting ideas and was not able to find any similar threads searching the forums. Any tips that anybody has would be greatly appreciated!

Cool, thanks for the response! If I'm understanding correctly, the DVD order is being phased out and replaced with a more generic "alternate order" feature? Sounds cool! Also sounds like there's no public ETA on when this info will be available via the API, but hopefully it's soon!
