Internal Server Faults when trying to get PDF images

I have observed since about January of this year that, when trying to get PDF images, there are spurious faults (restFaults, not restErrors) received from OPS. The fault code and message reads: SERVER.DomainAccess The request could not be processed. Please try again later. I post below a few example...

Re: exchange-documents.xsd 2.5.7

Hello Vesna, Yes, that is what I mean. CCD.xsd and CPCDefinitions.xsd cannot be downloaded from https://www.epo.org/searching-for-patents/data/web-services/ops.html#tab-3. It does not matter whether you are logged on as OPS forum user or not. This site can actually only be accessed in non-logged on ...

Re: exchange-documents.xsd 2.5.7

Hello Alex, Correct, the files CPDefinitions.xsd and CCD.xsd do not download. There seems to be a permission problem on the EPO server for these files. They cannot be accessed for downloading. The error reads "Fehler - Unzulässig" ("Error - Impermissible", visible in Google Chrome on the very bottom...

Duplicate Http Header when no result found - 2nd

There is an earlier post with the above subject dated back from 2017 from user JeremyGosling. EPO support replied that they could not reproduce the problem and that this should be a client software problem. I can reproduce this error with my own client software. Whenever OPS returns "404 Not found" ...

Concept of "priority" in OPS

I have observed that the concept of "priority" as used in OPS deviates fundamentally from what was meant by "priority founding application" in the Paris Convention. Namely, virtually any filings, whether priority founding or not (even divisional or continuation filings which by law cannot be priorit...

Re: Retrieving publications for given application number using CQL code "sap"

Dear Vesna, The application number query ".../published-data/application/epodoc//US20080027584P/biblio,full-cycle" seems to work. However the priority number query " .../published-data/priority/epodoc//US20080027584P/biblio,full-cycle" with X-OPS-Range either "1-100" or "1-10" returns: "(413) Reques...

Retrieving publications for given application number using CQL code "sap"

Hi, I tried to retrieve all publications that result from a given application number. However, for the application number US20000179065P, using the query https://ops.epo.org/3.2/rest-services/published-data/search/biblio,full-cycle?q=sap%3DUS20000179065P I get more than 100 publications. This is not...

Re: "CPCDefinitions.xsd" and "CCD.xsd"

I managed to solve the problem by myself, without help from OPS support. Thanks for nothing.

Re: exchange-documents.xsd 2.5.7

Hello Vesna, I knew the site www.cooperativepatentclassification.org. It has a file called CPCDefinitionsSchema10.xsd which is not the file name that EPO's ops.xsd expects and which is furthermore outdated (CPC definitions and last update of 20 May 2016). The file ccd.xsd then appears to be related ...
