rest-services/register and parameter pd

Post by mila » Thu Jul 08, 2021 12:54 pm

Dear OPS-Team,

Currently, we are consulting rest-services/register and using the query parameter like this: “rest-services/register/search?Range=1-25&q=ti%3Dpig%20and%20pd%3E20210615”, (Range: 1-25; q: ti=pig and pd>20210615).

It seems that the response only shows publications whose publication-reference/document-id/country is “EP”.

For example: WO2021116433 whose country is equal to “WO” and date is equal to “20210617” is not showed.

Could you give me a light in the topic?

You are correct, EP publication defines the date of pn for EP Register. Query Published Services with biblio constituent for WO's instead. That will work fine. If you still want to crosscheck with Register, extract EP's of those WO's and query EP's in OPS Register as a second step
