    Scott Ritz and Tyler Stevens One of our tools has a dependency on the CSVs that are linked to from this page. It seems the permission to those CSVs have changed so that we now get:


    You don't have permission to access /kms/concepts/concept_scheme/providers on this server.

     Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    Can you assist?

    1. Thanks for letting us know. We are looking into the issue

    2. This happened with me recently. I had to do two changes to my code (PHP script) to get it to work again. 

      1. Change to HTTPS URLs
      2. Add HTTP USERAGENT header when requesting the HTTPS URLs


      1. The issue is unrelated to the https change. We are rerunning some scripts on our end right now to help resolve the issue.

        1. Tyler Stevens do you have a rough etc on the effort? Can we expect it today?


          1. Yes, they are working now; please verify on your end.

            1. Looks much better. Thank you for the prompt fix.

  2. Tyler Stevens Who should I talk to if it seems like traffic from our server to is being blocked?

    sh-4.1$ curl -LI ''
    curl: (7) couldn't connect to host
    1. Are you still having issues? We were having some database issues yesterday. Please also note that we moved to https

      1. Yes, the problem persists. When I go to the link via browser the CSVs download but curling from 172.***.***.*** results in the message above.

        1. I will check with our system admin. Can you email me the IP you are trying to connect from.

  3. You can also try `curl`. It may be slower then the cache URL of course. We generate the cache version by calling this url ever 6 hours.

  4. Thomas Cherry is there an API documentation page for the GCMD KMS service?  I am having trouble with the original API usage that used to work in CWICStart (the CWIC CSW UI).  I recall that you had a document with various examples.  I am trying to retrieve all the root concepts. 

    Found the way to retrieve root concepts:

    Please let me know if there is documentation for the KMS API.
