CLAIMS Direct Web Services (CDWS) are REST services useful for querying, extracting, reporting, and otherwise interacting with the data-store, index, and attachment repositories. The services can be grouped into the following general categories:

The search services expose general full text searching across the entire patent collection using the SOLR Query Syntax. All of Apache SOLR search, relevance, sort, facet, and group functionality are available through this service. Additionally, although currently experimental, SOLR Clusters utilizing the Clustering Component are available for input to 3rd party tools, such as Carrot2.

Text

The text service encapsulates extraction of complete XML documents from the CLAIMS Direct XML data warehouse. Documents can be requested singly or in bulk.

Reporting

Reporting is a service that further expands the capacity of the text service. It allows extraction of data as CSV or XML. CSV columns can be chosen ad-hoc from a complete list of available fields. Reports can be generated from document lists, searches, pre-created CLAIMS Direct data warehouse tables (not available for shared-service customers), or entire load-ids.

Attachments

Through the attachment service, you can list or retrieve attachments associated with a particular CDWS XML document, including embedded images as well as external referenced text files.

Citation Service 

Citation services provide methods for retrieving backward or forward citations for an individual ucid or group of ucids.

Legal Status

The Legal Status service exposes legal events from the USPTO PAIR data. This service is currently BETA, and the inclusion of EPO INPADOC data is also in development.

Family

Family services provide methods for retrieving simple or extended family data.

Custom Application-Centric View (TWS)

The custom text web service returns an application number-centric, merged representation of one or more CLAIMS Direct documents.

System

The system service provides details about internal load status, load sources, and data that is currently processing through the primary data warehouse.

Warning

The new system service is currently under active development.

Version

The version service provides a simple way to display the current CDWS version.

PITR

The PITR (Patent Intelligence & Technology Report) service offers users the ability to create pivot tables of data using the SOLR JSON facet API.

Update

The update service is used to synchronize on-site installations of CLAIMS Direct.
