    Hi Krista,

    Can you confirm for me that you are looking for these test captures on the other end of the "Wayback" links in those crawls' Seeds reports?

    And not from the Wayback links in an entire collection's seed list?

    The latter will lead you only to captures that were permanently saved to your collection, so it is necessary to find test-crawled contents through their reports unless and until you decide specifically to save them.

    If you can't find the captures there, then please do let me know which crawls are misbehaving and I'd be happy to take a closer look.

    Hi there, I am having the same issue with my test crawls. They are over 24 hours and seem to have captured material, but I get the same "not in archive" message. I am going in through the test crawl seed - wayback link. I can usually get to the date of capture, but when I click on the date I then get the "not in archive" message.

    Hello,

    I am also having the same issue with both the test crawls and the production crawls not looking on the Wayback link (in either the reports or the collection seed list).

    Hello,

     

    I am also having the same issue with a number of test crawls when trying to access them through the wayback link on my test crawl's seed list. 

     

    It's very frustrating!

    Hi all,

    I am having the same issue with wayback links not working from the test crawl seed list.

    Thanks for reporting this, all! I can confirm from here on the back end that test captures are a little slower than usual to index and appear where we would expect them in Wayback. Apologies for the delay, but the crawls are indeed running and storing. We are updating Archive-It's System Status page here to reflect our progress on these, but I'll be sure to check back in with everyone here too when we're all caught up.

    And we're back in business :-) Test crawls should once again replay with Wayback where you expected to see them before. If you still see otherwise, please point us in that direction here or via support ticket and we'll look into it. Thanks for your patience on this one.

    I am having a similar problem to this with a saved test crawl. It has been 34 hours since the test crawl was saved and I am still getting the same message as in the op. I am also getting the message when trying to go to Wayback in the test crawl report, which had worked prior to saving. The only problem test crawl is a brozzler test crawl, while the Wayback links on several standard test crawls saved around the same time are working properly.

    Hi Karl, 

    We aren't aware of any widespread issues affecting the availability of test crawls at the moment. Please submit a support ticket with a link to the crawl report in question and we can take a look for you.
