Has anyone experienced a "500 Status Code Error" through OpenAthens URLs?
We noticed at the end of last month that accessing ScienceDirect journals
through OpenAthens links received the following error message.


{"statusCode":500,"error":"Internal Server Error","message":"An
internal server error occurred"}

EBSCO, who manages our OpenAthens, has submitted a ticket to Elsevier.
Elsevier, on the other hand, says that they don't manage a Redirector and
it's not something they can fix.  They suggest that we create a WayFless URL

I’d appreciate any information you can provide on this issue or similar
