Bing News Connector Issues

Iron Contributor

Hi all. I have setup the Bing News connector on SharePoint sites in a couple of different tenants and the results are the same: it's very inconsistent/unreliable. I have configured it with some simple key phrases to search for (there should be lots of news on these topics). In one tenant, nothing appeared at all until about after a week, and now there's been nothing new for days. In the other tenant, it's been configured for more than two weeks and still no news at all.


It's a shame that it doesn't function well, because I think it's a potentially awesome way to keep your SharePoint sites fresh and useful.


Any thoughts or fix recommendations would be appreciated. Thx.

The Bing News connector in our Teams is completely broken.  Nothing has been posted to the related channel in months, and when I try to edit the configured Bing News connector I receive a "Something went wrong" error.  I am also unable to configure a new Bing News connector.  The dialog displays but does not allow me to enter data any of the fields.  Essentially, it's worthless.
