Re: How to convert the publication number in docdb format to original format

Hi, There is but does not perform well with US numbers and you need publication date in every request. This is why I am not showing you how OPS numbering works for your specific case. If you still want to try it out, please see OPS documentation, but be aware that this service has its limitations an...

Re: How to convert the publication number in docdb format to original format

Hi, As I mentioned in my previous thread, we offer original application number of your US document in a biblio feed. You can then search US databases with that application number. Why you get no search in that specific database is a question for the USPTO. But as far as I see, USPTO's PAIR works per...

Re: Unexpected kind code behavior for bibliographic query results of epodoc AT14924U1

Hi, I am copying here an FAQ OPS answer about EPODOC numbers: "...while OPS requires you to (a) specify the format you are using (DOCDB or EPODOC) and (b) use the format as specified. Typically, issues will appear when working with publications where the EPODOC format requires that kind codes (or pa...

Re: How to get the original application number for the publication number obtained by the response from citation respons

Hi, First of all, you need to watch for "status" tag that must state "successful". If it gives you a BRE or pBRE errors then this is a sign that the request was not processed correctly. <ops:meta name="status" value="SUCCESS"/> The number must include publication date in OPS Number Service, otherwis...

Re: RESTful way to retrieve Global dossier documents

Hi There is no way for you to retrieve search reports from Global Dossier via any API from the EPO. Global Dossier is nothing more than a web service that we use to connect our interface with various web services from registers of respective patent offices. This is not data that we store anywhere so...

Re: Sending Data for multiple GET request giving Parse Error

Hi, I cannot see from your example why you get that response. But also, we do not have legal events that would give you exact information about patents being dead or alive and we also don't have legal status reponse for every biblio loaded in our database. Also, in OPS legal you have an option to us...

Re: How to get the citations using the application number through POST method

Hi, Document in your query has no citations in our databases: https://worldwide.espacenet.com/publicationDetails/biblio?II=0&ND=3&adjacent=true&locale=en_EP&FT=D&date=20180705&CC=US&NR=2018185543A1&KC=A1#.

Hi, Bulk number input only works in OPS Published services when searching with numbers (both in GET and POST). For all other services we do offer POST method but not for bulk input family.JPG PS: in POST for bulk (mentioned before) you use ever line for one number, without brackets or commas Regards...
