Patent Family Info Not Found

Post by hboddu » Fri May 12, 2017 4:39 pm

Patent: JPH058798B2
I'm trying to get the info by using these URL's:

https://ops.epo.org/3.1/rest-services/f ... H058798.B2
https://ops.epo.org/3.1/rest-services/f ... PH058798B2
I'm seeing Entity Not Found Error.

I'm seeing the data for that patent here :
https://worldwide.espacenet.com/publica ... OC&locale=

Are we using wrong URL? Please advise on how to get the info for that patent.

Thank you

Hi,

For DOCDB number format you need to seperate country code, serial number and a kidn of the document with . (dots)

You have three different choices in OPS for this specific INPADOC extended family:

http://ops.epo.org/3.1/rest-services/fa ... 058798.B2/
http://ops.epo.org/3.1/rest-services/fa ... .B2/biblio
http://ops.epo.org/3.1/rest-services/fa ... blio,legal

Please also not that v 3.1 is no longer fully supported because v 3.2 is now official production version so please use that one in the future.

Regards,
OPS support

Hi,

We don't have many IN documents and we don't have this specific IN document in our database. But if we would have it the format would be IN6153CH2008 A

Epodoc is nothing more than number normalisation for searching Espacenet. DOCDB is proper number format and the concordance table for DOCDB format is available in my collection of links thread available in this forum (Publication table and Application/priority number format table): open-patent-services-and-publication-se ... c6071.html
