Data usage for non-registered users

Post by gw1976 » Tue Oct 22, 2013 3:40 pm

Dear OPS Support team,
I was browsing through the documentation for OPS 3.1 and noticed there wasn't a way to display data usage for non-registered users. For registered users I see the following headers:

• X-RegisteredQuotaPerWeek-Used
• X-RegisteredPayingQuotaPerWeek-Used
• X-Rejection-Reason

I don't see anything for non-registered users.

Dear user,

There is no such thing for non-registered users They are anonymous to the system if they are not registered.

This kind of usage is meant only for human users of OPS (some users are using our OPS Guide interface in a same way as other use Espacenet) and for testing. You won't be able to retrieve more than 100 MB of data per day anyway.

Kind regards,
OPS support
