Response with search query

Post by araujo » Thu Apr 06, 2017 1:29 pm

Hi,

I was trying to make a search query according to specific keywords on the title, various assignees and various CPC codes, while being able to have a response the title, the application number, the abstract and the assignee. However, by reading the documentation, all examples provided explore the various different responses for a specific or a set of specific patent applications.

I am sure I am missed something because that should be quite a classic case, but for some reason I really could not find in the documentation http://documents.epo.org/projects/babyl ... 3_1_en.pdf where that is specified.

Thank you for the help!

Hi,

I would most probably be able to help if you give me something more specific, some examples or query that you need assistance with?

Regards,
OPS support

Hi and thank you for the quick reply! For example, how could I do a simple query like checking for ti = "camera", and then have as a response the patent application number, the assignee, the title, the abstract and the first claim of the first 10 inventions?

Is it that I must do a first query for the ti = "camera" and then do individual queries to retrieve the biblio for each of the patent application numbers that I received from the first query? or is there a command I could get the desired response output for all the patents from a single query?

Hi,

You are probably trying tp do something like this:
http://ops.epo.org/3.1/rest-services/pu ... =ti=camera


If you have a look at the documentation you will see which constituents are available in which service, if you can use more than one or where only one constituent is allowed. In case of the CQL search, you can do the following next to the already mentioned biblio constituent in my first example:

http://ops.epo.org/3.1/rest-services/pu ... =ti=camera

http://ops.epo.org/3.1/rest-services/pu ... =ti=camera

I hope this helps. I will be talking a lot about constituents and numbering formats used in OPS also in my OPS WebEx online session in June so you are welcome to join me on-line (see more in Announcements about the session and where to register)

I hope this helps

Thanks a lot for the help, that was exactly what I was looking for. It would be great to join your webex!

I tried actually to run http://ops.epo.org/3.1/rest-services/pu ... era/biblio and http://ops.epo.org/3.1/rest-services/pu ... =ti=camera but it did not work but forgot to try the last combination :)

When you say "you can do the following next to the already mentioned biblio constituent in my first example" you mean another search afterwards or actually there is a way to run the commands in parallel to get a single output with all those constituents?

Thanks again!

No, I meant in CQL you can do a search with Biblio ("with already mentioned" was meant my first biblio link) Abstract and Full-cycle constituents. In this case that would make no since whatsoever because biblio gives abstracts already and fully cycle gives biblio's and abstracts so no need to combine. But for other services sometimes you can combine and would make sense to combine and sometimes you can only have one that is given my default.

If you want to have a look at how constituents work in other services you can check the documentation and a table about constituents, it all described there.
