Retrieval of US2020093529A1 with OPS, no results found

Dear OPS team,
I have come across a problem when trying to retrieve the bibliographic data using the publication number US2020093529A1 with the following OPS request: ... .A1/biblio
The result is
<fault xmlns="">
<message>No results found</message>
The problem seems to be specific to the mentioned US publication number. The family member EP3626189A1 can be retrieved.
The publication number US2020093529A1 exists in Espacenet using the URL: ... 20093529A1

Please tell me if I'm doing somthing wrong.

You didn't do anything wrong. The document was only propagated into the database that feeds New Espacenet but not into the one that feeds Classic Espacenet/OPS.

I've asked colleagues to re-trigger it for both databases and I think you will be able to see it tomorrow in OPS and Classic.

You formatting of the URL call was correct, so your link should work tomorrow (or latest Thursday, I am not sure if they manage today).

Thank you for reporting the issue
