Problem with sandbox signin?

Mon, 21 May 2018 - 15:04 UTC
I'm working on code to talk with the sandbox, going through the usual 3-legged authentication to get and confirm data. Today, on the usual signin link, the link goes to unsafe:javascript:void(0); which unsurprisingly doesn't work, at least in Firefox. Any more info about this? Many thanks,

one-time-only permissions?

Thu, 17 May 2018 - 17:26 UTC
Please forgive me if I "missed the memo". I returned to developing code against the sandbox today, and saw that the "grant authorization" screen no longer offers a checkbox for "Allow this permission until I revoke it." (screen shot attached). Is this: 1) Something I should have known about? 2)

Hi, The client iD that is returned in your error message (APP-90R3NMFJNN5M4J84) is for the ORCID production environment at orcid.org, but the call you provided is for our sandbox at sandbox.orcid.org. (More about the sandbox is at https://support.orcid.org/knowledgebase/articles/166623-is-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

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

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
