Can't Yahoo! at least indicate on a web-based retrieval that their system is shutdown henceforth, as opposed to a cryptic message like:

 

 Sorry, Unable to process request at this time -- error 999.

Surely this is just a temporary issue? The API can't have been shut down?

Looks like this is still down.  Anyone have any idea when it will come back up. 

 

http://quote.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=HPE  requests returns "Sorry, Unable to process request at this time -- error 999."

Alternative but these guys are not at all responsive... although the server seems to always be up... *Link Removed - See the community guidelines for more information.*

I am not totally sure of the terms here but does what I see saying "Yahoo! Finance API" feature has been discontinued mean my stock quote updates from Yahoo will never work again?

 

I sure hope not.  I need this function.

I'm hoping its a glitch rather than anything permanent but no one seems to be commiting themselves.

Hi All - I'm blocking new replies to this thread since it refers to an older outage.

 

The new download issue which began 11/01/17 and returning an error 999 for most users is currently being investigated and we hope to have it resolved soon.
