Patent Pipeline Wizard Step 2
To run patent pipeline, you must configure at least one source to the patent IDs and patent metainformation retrieval processes (each one can be accessed clicking on the correspondent tab – evidenced by the red box).
To the patent ID search, you are able to configure several components with the respective access credentials obtained by the registration process. Among these modules, you can configure:
- Custom Search API from Google;
- Bing Web Search API from Microsoft;
- and Open Patent Services API from European Patent Office.
Similarly, to the patent metainformation retrieval, you are able to configure several components with the respective access keys. More precisely, you can configure:
- Open Patent Services API from European Patent OPffice;
- and PATENTSCOPE API from World of Intellectual Property Organization .
To add a new component, you must select it from the combo box (in blue).
For each component, the specific settings appear under the combo box (in the area within the orange box).
After fill that settings you must click on “+” button to add the component into your system. If well configured, the component must appear in the table below the configuration section (in the area within the red box).
After fill these settings (at least one component per retrieval process), you must click on “Ok” button, initializing the patent pipeline retrieval process.
As the process proceeds you can check the status of activity looking at the progress bar.
As a result of the process, an IR Report is shown.
If the query succeeds, the new Query results become available in the Publication Manager View as shown below.
Default settings can be changed using the Preferences options in the Settings Menu and selecting InformationRetrieval -> PatentPipeline
