Classification code retrieval of given patent

Post by mtani » Thu Jan 24, 2019 3:24 am

Hi, all.

I am trying to retrieve classification code of particular patent using OPS API
however I cannot find what API is appropriate to use.
(For instance, retrieve classification code of "WO2013097234")

Could anyone give me a help?

We don't offer any production API's in OPS, only testing console. If you want to test request that gives biblio with classes you can use Developers console and Published services requests (Publish Data Retrieval, for example)

The query must look like this:
