DSS Webinar Dec 7: Christaan metioned embargo handling. Is that handled for at hoc requests as well? Does it mean that data is just available after the longest embargo time of the requested list?

This depends on your extraction mechanism.

For scheduled extractions, in your user preferences, you can specify that you wish to receive partial files. This means that you will get your data in multiple results files as each required embargo is passed (usually grouped in common chunks of time like 5, 10, 15 minutes, but they can be as long as 'until 00:00 UTC').

For On Demand extractions, your extraction will run until all of the data can be released, and then you will receive all of the results in the one JSON response.

In both cases, the data is gathered at the time the extraction is ran and held on our servers pending the embargo delays. Your data will all have a common snap time even though you may not receive it all at the same time.
