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 left in the downloading status windows). Why did the EPO impose such a downloading restriction on these files??

Personally I manually edited the other XSD files so that I no longer needed CPDefinitions.xsd and CCD.xsd in order to get a working C# source file. I do not do anything with OPS that would need C# code derived from CPDefinitions.xsd and CCD.xsd.

Hi,

Are you saying you can not load those documents available on our website: https://www.epo.org/searching-for-paten ... html#tab-3 ?

You have to be logged in into OPS as if you query OPS properly. Then it works. I don't know why colleagues decides to lock them like this but I will ask them to unlock them for public

Regards,

Hello Vesna,

Yes, that is what I mean.

CCD.xsd and CPCDefinitions.xsd cannot be downloaded from https://www.epo.org/searching-for-paten ... 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 mode; the link "Log in" always shown there is ineffective.

All other xsd files of that link can be downloaded as non-logged on user, using "Link speichern unter" in Google Chrome.

We have old post in forum on that: schema-documents-xsd-yaml-inaccessible-7551#p19829 . In the meantime we unlocked those but these last files are newly loaded and it seems that they didn't apply the same logic as for old files. Since I am on internal network I don't have such issues but external users do, we had same before for all other documents.

I have tried with POSTMAN via external IP as described in my old forum post and it works but I have asked colleagues to process those new files same as as they did older files.
