Obligatory Registration for REST Service with version 3.1

Post by Chris Every » Mon Jun 24, 2013 10:28 am


we got to know that it is planned with version 3.1 of the REST Web Service that an obligatory registration will be introduced to track fair usage, which is OK with us.

We are just wondering
  • if we can register in advance
  • if we can test this in advance
  • when is it planned that this goes live
As we are using the service with some automated processes it would be very handy to know so that we do not have a downtime when the date arrives.

Thank you in advance for your reply.

Dear Chris,

There will be Beta testing available for several months for all users to test and have possibility to switch to this new version. We will inform all users when new v3.1 will be available and will inform all about deadlines and duration of Beta as well. Please monitor notifications in our Announcements part of this forum and you can also subscribe to RSS feeds on our website: http://www.epo.org/searching/free/ops.html so that you don't miss any information.

I am sorry not to be able to give you more information at this point.

Kind regards,

OPS support
