Having difficulties with Search API

Post by langlotz » Wed Mar 21, 2018 8:25 am

Dear all

I'm trying to run an example for "Published Data Keywords Search with Variable Constituents" using the Developper's Area's OPS v3.2 API. I understand that one of the valid consituents would be "biblio", so I tried:

GET /3.2/rest-services/published-data/biblio/search?q=ti%3Dplastic HTTP/1.1

However, this results in a 404 Not Found error - an so do any other values for "{constituents}". Trying the same query for "Published Data Keywords Search without Consituents" works perfectly:

GET /3.2/rest-services/published-data/search?q=ti%3Dplastic HTTP/1.1

finds >10,000 results (<ops:biblio-search total-result-count="10000">).

What am I missing...?

Hi,

There seems to be an issue with API console and we have already informed our developers.

Regards,

OPS support

Dear OPS Support

Is it possible that this issue is still unsolved...?


With kind regards,
Frank

Hi,

You are correct, its not working as it should. Please use options with already specified constituent in the meantime. There is a separate option of every constituent available

Hello
I have a school project that consists in recovering the characteristics of the patent attributes on the site, I registered but I have a problem with the register search request that shows me "HTTPError: 500 Server Error: Internal Server Error for url: https://ops.epo.org/3.2/rest-services/register/search". I put you my code bellow. Hoping that you can help me.
I thank you in advance.

Hi,

With information given her I clearly can not help you. Can you please write to patentdata(at) epo.org and explain exactly what are you trying to retrieve from OPS Register and give me your user name when you write so that I can see if your registration is approved.
