I keep getting this error for any citi cards accounts I have. This has been going on for weeks now. On occasion I can run the download again and it will complete downloading transactions. I am using the last beta version 2019.4 (1904) but this was present in the last release also. This is starting to get annoying so is this something on MD side or Citi side.

There was an error communicating with your financial institution. The details of this error are below.
Bank Name: Citi Cards
The error code reported by the server was: 2000
We've had a problem processing your request. It may take 24 to 36 hours for the problem to be resolved. Please try again at that time.

    Sean -- Thank you so much for helping Citi to get the connection back to working state.
    Despite what Citi CSR reported to me last week, I am now able to download transactions again.

    Uh oh. A new error seems to have popped up after a day and a half. It worked fine yesterday and earlier this morning.

    A communication or parsing error occurred. This could be the result of a network problem, a proxy error, or misconfigured server.

    I'm a fellow user

    HTTP Error:500 Internal Server Error suggests a general problem with the Bank's server.

    Got past the 200 error today after the Citibank updated their servers 2 June.
    Had to enable the desktop app access going through my Citibank profile more settings. Then setup online banking on Moneydance using Citi Cards option from the drop down menu.

    Thanks all.

    I am glad this is fixed. I can download again, but I now have 600 duplicate transactions. Thankfully it only duplicated to the middle of November (after the posting of the November statement). Is there a way to fix this. Merge duplicates?

    A couple of days ago my citi connections started working again - no changes on my end.

    Thanks, Paul

    I was just able to get mine to work with the normal "add desktop access" timer.
    Not sure what the solution was, didn't see any recent emails. Glad it's fixed, but I would hope MD folks would communicate better on this type of issue.

    Downloads are failing again. This time it says username or password is incorrect. The "fix" was working through 6/20.

    Hi everyone,

    We've unfortunately heard many reports of this issue with Citi connections over the weekend. It looks like they've changed something on their end again, and we'll try to figure out what that is and make contact with them.

    I think we have enough connections logs at the moment, but if you want to send yours as well, please open up a new private thread on our website to send them. Please do not post your connection logs to this thread.

    We'll post any updates about this here when we have them. In the meantime, using manual downloads like you all did for the last round of this is the current workaround.

    Infinite Kind Support

    Thanks. I went here first to see if others experienced the same thing and voila! I sure wish Citi would just leave what works alone, unless it's a security thing, cause it's sure frustrating to the customers!!

    Broken again here too. Please do something to fix rather than just blaming Citi.

    I have the same problem. The Citi Card download stopped working back in January 2020 and MD fixed the problem around May 2020 now I have the same problem as stated above. Called CITI support and they were not able to help me. So I'm back with MD. Pleas fix this!

    Hope this helps.

    I have not been able to download, and posted here:
    So far, no response and still can't connect.
    Can someone post which MD version they have used successfully? I am running MD2019.4 1899 on Mac OS 10.13.6 High Sierra.
