[API-users] how to check last date-time dataset was harvested?

Hi David,

The crawl attempt is the start of the crawl with the publisher.
Once the status confirms it is finished, then you could use that.  While it is crawling, the status will be something like “RUNNING” (off the top of my head)

Hi again.

Is there any way to use GBIF portal API to know the last date & time a certain resource was harvested by GBIF? (basically, to know if it has the latest info provided by the original source, or it could be outdated)

I suspect the info in this url but I don' know how to interpretate them all:


I guess this is the IPT updated time:

"modified": "2017-02-16T22:07:41.127+0000"

¿Perhaps this is what I am looking for?


Thanks a lot
