Hi All,

Starting this morning we are getting 500 internal server error when we use the bing map endpoint to geocode an address. Trying to see if anyone has seen this occuring or not. I am getting the same error https://www.bing.com/api/maps/sdkrelease/mapcontrol/isdk/searchbyaddress on this page along with any of the urls mentioned in the MSDN document https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/bingmaps/rest-services/locations/find-a-location-by-address. Please advise if anyone has any update. My tags may be wrong but I am not able to find appropriate tags for this api anymore.

Sample call:
https://dev.virtualearth.net/REST/v1/Locations/annapolis%20md?inclnb=1&incl=ciso2&maxRes=50&key={BING_KEY}

Thanks
Akash

    Never mind. Seems like there was an issue with the service itself but seems to be working now. I wish there was a status page for this service to see any outages rather than hunting down forums and twitter.
