I have a question about the Materials Project ID’s. Were the MP ID’s recently modified a lot? I am using the data that I queried back in 2019 September or something, using the “get_entry_by_material_id” tag from the pymatgen MPRester. Now I cannot query quite a large fraction of the entries that I had previously. If I search them on the website, the pop up as a different MPID. I found that there was an update of MP Database on November of 2019. In this update, were some of the mpid’s deprecated?
If the original mpid points to a different mpid entry, what would be the difference between these two entries? Are all of the data except the ID (mpid) the same?
Would there be a way to use the “get_entry_by_material_id” to query the entries that pop up as different MPID?
The following MPID’s that have this issue are as follows:
mp-764149 --> mp-752568
mp-765099 --> mp-760182
mp-582900 --> mp-557652
