Internal attribute used in update procedures. Values include:
A deleted status can mean one of two things:
- The originating data provider (patent office or third party) has requested that we remove a document.
- The originating data provider (patent office or third party) has changed the makeup of the ucid either by remapping a kind code or changing the format of the publication number.
In both of these cases, CLAIMS Direct sets the status=deleted, deleted_load_id=<load-id> and removes all data in all satellite tables, although deleted records are indexed. Documents marked @status=deleted should never be extracted from your CLAIMS Direct instance or, if they are marked at a later date, should be removed from downstream processing.
