Re: published-data/images/ issues

Thank you Vesna for your helpful reply and for addressing my concerns. I think that the discussion forum is exactly the right place to discuss these issues, because users can benefit from one another's experiences and from the EPO's previous responses to known issues. For example, it is probably ver...

Re: published-data/images/ issues

This is not an isolated error. See also https://forums.epo.org/404-responses-from-certain-equivalents-requests-7647 for more examples of the same problem. Note that all the errors were identified in the results of a single search query, so I expect you can easily find many, many more examples of mis...

Re: 404 responses from certain 'equivalents' requests

In fact, the problem is not specific to 'equivalents' enquiries at all, but rather to 'images' enquiries. Further examples which are not 'equivalents' enquiries: https://ops.epo.org/end-of-life/rest-services/published-data/publication/docdb/AT.335850.B/images https://ops.epo.org/end-of-life/rest-ser...

404 responses from certain 'equivalents' requests

Certain 'images' endpoints are not working on version 3.2, unexpectedly returning a 404 response. This only affects certain document IDs, with most documents unaffected. However, it is unexpected because the same endpoints work perfectly on version 3.1 (end-of-life) for exactly the same document IDs...

Schema documents (XSD, YAML) inaccessible

The schema documents (XSD and YAML files) listed at https://www.epo.org/searching-for-patents/data/web-services/ops.html#tab-3 are not accessible. Instead, each of the links returns the following response: <error> <code>403</code> <message>This request has been rejected due to the violation of Fair ...

Full-text descriptions and claims

Full-text descriptions and claims are currently available from far fewer authorities via OPS than via espacenet ( https://www.epo.org/searching-for-patents/technical/espacenet/ops/faq.html#faq-74 ). Although I understand that there may be copyright issues or licensing costs associated with providing...

Re: Inconsistency in JSON response

Although @nisseknudsen mentions classifications, this is in fact a more general issue related to conversion from XML to JSON format. It affects all parts of the JSON response that may contain an array. When the JSON response is based on XML data of the form, <items> <item>1</item> <item>2</item> </i...

Order of boolean operators without parentheses

The CQL specification ( https://www.loc.gov/standards/sru/cql/spec.html ) states that boolean operators are evaluated left-to-right. This means that a search for plastic and bicycle or seat without parentheses should return results for the query (plastic and bicycle) or seat . Instead, the actual re...
