I found an old announcement in this group that external-id-relationship was now mandatory since the 2.0 specification. But when I look at the 2.1 and 3.0_rc schema, it is still listed as optional. https://github.com/ORCID/ORCID-Source/blob/master/orcid-model/src/main/resources/common_2.1/common-2

TLS and .net <4.6

Wed, 12 Sep 2018 - 16:16 UTC
We've had a couple of reports from .net using members that they're having trouble connecting to https://orcid.org/oauth/token. If you're seeing this issue, we believe that moving to TLS1.2 will fix the issue. Older versions of .net do not support TLS1.2 out of the box and require configuration

Hi all I've got a question regarding the handing of authors/contributors within publications. Actually we would like to import those to our system, without going to the external source (e.g. Crossref). If specific publication metadata is embedded as bibtex, we parse the authors in bibtex,

Has ORCID made available the code that is being used to deliver the Swagger interface please? I had a look at https://members.orcid.org/api/resources/code-examples and couldn't spot it. Secondly, I think there may be an error in the swagger definition at https://pub.orcid.org/resources/swagge

Client not found error whenever I try to get an auth token

Sat, 23 Jun 2018 - 13:33 UTC
So... I went through your bizzare auth ritual, got a code and then tried to get an auth token (**this seems over-engineered as fuck, I mean, a simple auth credentials header will do, it's not a stock broker or bankl it's just some administrative data). In any case, I get the following error:
