Project Export API Issue


I am experiencing an issue exporting a project using the API:

  • Step 1 - make the export request to GitLab - returns a 202 success
  • Step 2 - check the status of the export so we know when to try downloading it - 200, export status = finished (according to the docs, this means it’s ready to download; the response also provided a download link to call)
  • Step 3 - call the download link - and we get a 404, but if I try after several seconds, then we get the download file - 200 success.

When fetching the download, if it fails I wait 10 seconds, then try again. If that fails, I wait 20 seconds, then 30 seconds, etc. until I finally get the file I need.

Anyone else experienced the same issue?
