Hi, I'm facing a problem with indexation.
A few days ago, All URLs of my site were indexed within seconds. But now it says
"The inspected URL is known to Bing but has some issues which are preventing indexation. We recommend you to follow Bing Webmaster Guidelines to increase your chances of indexation."
Here is the site URL: (link removed by moderator)
It is an educational site, and none of the URLs violates bing guidelines. Even the site is getting indexed in Google with no issue. Please suggest to me a solution what to do.
I have already tried APIs but nothing
You can see the details in an image.

I have this same exact problem, it's been an entire month and Bing's webmaster shows this error, it could've been better if it shows you the exact error but for some reason we have nothing but this frustrating message leaving us confused, I've checked my website and it doesn't have any problem with Bing's guidelines, my site is indexed on Google but for some reason Bing won't accept it.

@John_Bloggs1705 Same here - Discovered but not crawled. My site was indexed in Bing for many years and then it just stopped 6 months ago, totally de-listed - dropped like a rock to zero in one day. Nothing I've tried from their guidelines or site scan feedback has helped. Support was responsive but ultimately of no help and stopped responding - "we're looking into it" turned into "there's an issue with your site that needs to be fixed". LOL any idea what that may be because Google sure seems to like the site.
URL Inspection tells me "URL Cannot appear on Bing" because "issues that are preventing indexation" but Live URL inspection tells me "URL Can be Indexed by Bing" if it "passes quality checks and gets indexed by Bing". How did we end up in Bing Jail, and how do we get out?

Well, it appears Bing has some serious issues with their index. My website with non-commercial, really helpful content has the same issues, while another neglected, outdated website of mine is still rising through their rankings without any issues.

I had this same issue and after working out a little, I found out that the URL with http:// VS https:// has to be submitted separately for indexing and canonical URLs should be adjusted accordingly.
Also, the file BingSiteAuth.xml verification files need to be reuploaded again.
After doing the above process made me get a reply from Bing Webmaster Support Tools Team telling they will respond regarding this

It would seem that Bing's index has some severe problems. The same problems affect my website's non-commercial, incredibly helpful information, however my abandoned, out-of-date website is still climbing the search engine results pages without any problems.

Exact same issue. My e-Commerce site was in the index and this year it just vanished with 0 pages in the index. There are zero malware notices, zero copyright issues, a few errors such missing alt tags etc. My site has been in Googles index since 2005 with zero issues. The lack of transparency is frustrating
