orignal number format missing in Priority Number

Post by jhchoi » Mon Oct 12, 2020 11:05 am

Hi,

Since last month, only the epo doc number format of the priority number is provided, but the original number format seems to be missing in many cases.

Would you provide the original number format for the priority number as before.

I tried to convert epodoc number format to orginal number format using Number Service API, but failed to convert.

1) The below url retrieved orginal number format for priority number.
http://ops.epo.org/3.2/rest-services/pu ... 446/biblio

2) The below url didn't retrive original number format for prirority number.
http://ops.epo.org/3.2/rest-services/pu ... 292/biblio

Thanks for your reply in advance.

Best regards,
Jaeho

Hi,

I 've asked developers to check that, original format should be in that example too, so I hope they can fix it soon

Hi,

After extensive analysis was done by colleagues in charge of data they came to the conclusion that this data format was not regularly delivered to us by WIPO and therefore we cannot offer it for all WO publications. Unfortunately, we won't be able to do anything about your request

Thanks for the reply. Vesna,

I understood that the original format cannot be provided from the currently entered data. I would like to know whether I can get the original format for the newly added WO publications in the future.

Best regards,
Jaeho

Hi,

We get what WIPO sends us and they should theoretically always sent it even in the past but we have no influence on that. We will load what they give us.
