Issues attempting to parse works

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 - 11:27 UTC
Hi, We are attempting to use the new ORCID V2.0 api to import works into a repository based on the ORCID identifier. To do this we are using the following call: curl -H "Accept: application/orcid+xml" 'https://pub.sandbox.orcid.org/v2.0/0000-0002-9227-8514/works' The resulting xml should be

Pull Multiple Items

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 - 19:21 UTC

API 2.0: authorization for /activities/update always fails

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 - 14:12 UTC
All I was able to authorize is the "/authenticate" scope. Whenever I try to request authorization for "/activities/update" on sandbox via the 2.0 API, it reports "Invalid scope". I tried both from Google OAuth playground and via curl with the same result. My client ID is APP-U5LLQCW33OX4QL72.

Biography updating

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 - 13:37 UTC
Hi all, I'm just getting to grips with the ORCID APIs as we'll soon be starting to use them in a project. We want to allow our academics to update their published and personal details once in a local "research hub" and then, where possible, push this information out to other services they might

Writing Multiple Works with the Same Identifier

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 - 23:06 UTC
Hi All, We've encountered a number of issues recently in the production system, which did not come up in our testing (though this is most likely down to our test data, rather than anything to do with API versions). When users have attempted to use our app to send publication metadata from our
