OpenID 'sub' change schduled for May 16th

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 - 10:22 UTC
All, We have scheduled the change to the format of the 'sub' element within id_tokens for the 16th of May. This is to address the following issue: There is a mismatch between the 'sub' provided within our OpenID tokens and the 'sub' provided by the userinfo endpoint. Specifically, the

Members report - analysis

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 - 14:12 UTC
Not strictly an API question - for those that are member organisations of ORCID, have any of you used the member reports to carry out any further analysis? We have a member organisation (in the UK consortium) that would like to generate some graphs (or similar) based on the figures in the

are credentials, tokens, authentication needed for obtaining personal information from an ORCID?

Wed, 11 Apr 2018 - 14:30 UTC
I have a very simple use case in which all I need to do is to obtain the first and last name of a researcher given their ORCID. My system will not use ORCID for authentication / single sign-on purposes as we have our own authentication system. I am trying to navigate the bloated, buggy, visually

OpenID 'sub' mismatch.

Mon, 09 Apr 2018 - 11:35 UTC
All, It's been brought to our attention that there is a mismatch between the 'sub' provided within our OpenID tokens and the 'sub' provided by the userinfo endpoint. Specifically, the id_token contains https://orcid.org/0000-0000-0000-0000 but the user info contains 0000-0000-0000-0000. We

Permissions Preauthorization Technical Working Group

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 - 08:01 UTC
All, We're putting together a working group to explore the concept of enabling researchers to 'pre-authorize' member integrations, with a focus on the technical and security aspects. As you are no doubt aware, we currently use OAuth and OpenID, so would like to be able to use one or both of

Request example of parsing ORCID XML using php

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 - 11:31 UTC
Hello, Can anyone show me an example of using php to parse the XML returned by an ORCID API call? Although I have experience reading XML files, the use of namespaces requires special techniques, which I haven't been able to apply. The attached file, keyword.xml, containing 'common' and

Obtain profile details for multiple ORCIDs

Mon, 12 Mar 2018 - 15:04 UTC
Hi there, The ORCID API provides a /search endpoint that allows us to, well... Search for ORCIDs. Unfortunately, the results only include the actual ORCID, without additional details that can inform users whether the given results are indeed the ORCIDs they were looking for, such as the name

Runtime Error When Record XML is returned.

Hi All, I'm in the midst of upgrading to the v2.0 message schema and was wondering if anyone has seen the following when reading the ORCID Record XML. I'm using spring-social as the library. There is no reference to the following class: Caused by: javax.xml.bind.JAXBException - with linked

Version 1.2 no longer available on the public API

Thu, 01 Mar 2018 - 20:38 UTC
Today we sunset version 1.2 of the public API. Going forward, any public clients using v1.2 in their calls will get an error message. We tried to contact everyone we knew would be affected by this change, and we hope no integrations are impacted. But, if you were still using 1.2 on the public

Reminder: Two weeks until 1.2 will be sunset for the Public API

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 - 17:11 UTC
This is a reminder that on March 1st version 1.2 will no longer be available on the Public API. If you are making calls to the ORCID Public API (using the pub.orcid.org domain) you must update to version 2.0 or 2.1 of the API by the end of the

OOB OAuth?

Fri, 02 Feb 2018 - 20:26 UTC
Hi, With the rorcid R client I'm working on, I have OAuth supported now, but it doesn't work for OOB OAuth (e.g., when behind a firewall where the redirect URL I have localhost:1410 won't work). Seems like the redirect_uri for OOB is "urn:ietf:wg:oauth:2.0%". Is there anything that might be

Swagger for Public API?

Fri, 02 Feb 2018 - 01:03 UTC
I feel like I remember there being a Swagger for the ORCID public API, but now I can't find it. I see https://api.orcid.org/v2.1/ for the member API. (I prefer something like swagger to the docs at https://members.orcid.org/api which confuse me) Thanks, Scott Chamberlain

Default Public API version is now v2.0

Thu, 01 Feb 2018 - 15:56 UTC
Today we changed the default version of the public API to 2.0, which means that if you are not specifying a version in your pubic API calls you may start getting errors.. We have tried to contact everyone who we think will be affected by this change, but if your integration is affected, you can

Why the read-limited scope's expiration timestamps changed.

Thu, 01 Feb 2018 - 14:10 UTC
On Tuesday I posted about a problem Crossref had with our read-limited access tokens expiration values. (The posting has since been deleted as it contained access tokens. I approve of this deletion.) I wanted to follow up with the root cause of this problem as this might affect others too. On

Almost all our /orcid-works/read-limited scope access tokens expired on 2018-01-30 14:07:29

Wed, 31 Jan 2018 - 12:33 UTC
Almost all our /orcid-works/read-limited scope access tokens expired on 2018-01-30 14:07:29. I can't tell at this time if this was a data error on our part, or not. Do you know of any reason why /orcid-works/read-limited would all expired on this date? Here are some example access tokens:
