You're welcome.

There is an ongoing issue where the errata index ( 
https://access.redhat.com/errata/#/ ) is sometimes delayed several days. 
  I have an internal infrastructure issue filled to have the issue fixed.

I have a script that queries that errata index when I do releases for 
CentOS Linux 7, but if the index is not updated then I have to go back 
later to rerun the query manually.

I will try to develop something that can automate the re-querying if the 
errata data is delayed.
