Issues with the IIASA database API

Daniel Huppmann

Dear pyam users,

We are currently experiencing problems with the IIASA database API. This might be due to a failing redirect to our new user management system. This issue affects database API connections via pyam using stable releases as well as the Scenario Explorer front-end.

As a quickfix, you can install the latest pyam version from GitHub using
pip install -e git+
This connects directly to the new user management system and should work as expected.

Apologies for the inconvenience!
