Thank you for your message.
The SDMX download option is enabled for all the DataBank databases (Download Options/Advanced Options/SDMX).
Kindly note that only the World Development Indicators database has an additional SDMX type (compact).

Seems there is a different sdmx entry point: https://api.worldbank.org/v2/sdmx/rest/
But I could not find any documentation about it from worldbank, if documentation page exists or will be provided in future it will be very useful.
I discovered it while exploring the following tool: https://github.com/amattioc/SDMX

Thank you. Unfortunately, your API is not sufficiently SDMX-standard compatible so that we could use it for integration in our data capture system (that queries many organisations and should thus be generic). Basic query types such as getting all dataflows or getting a structure for a particular dataflow are not available. Basic rest standard syntax such as "http://api.worldbank.org/v2/datastructure/all/all/all" is unfortunately not supported.
Do you have any plans to enhance the support for the SDMX rest syntax? Thanks in advance.
