Hi Akshat,

You caught us between Christmas and New Year, when many people were on 

A synchronous query would be like this: 
so I'll assume you mean the asynchronous download service.

This curl request has worked for me, producing this download on the test 
https://www.gbif-uat.org/occurrence/download/0000143-171108114045140 or 


     "creator": "MattBlissett",
     "notification_address": [ "mblissett at gbif.org" ],
     "predicate": {
       "type": "and",
       "predicates": [
             "type": "equals",
             "key": "TAXON_KEY",
             "value": "2280097"
             "type": "equals",
             "key": "HAS_COORDINATE",
             "value": "true"
     "format": "DWCA"

curl -i --user MattBlissett:XXXXX -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X 
POST -d @query.json 

If you still have trouble, please send the Curl request you used.
