The following pages describe how to use Postman for testing the different features of the new DAS API.

For the testing of the system, we have loaded some sample priorities (of published documents) accessible through the WIPO PATENTSCOPE service.

The following sample documents have been picked randomly from WIPO PATENTSCOPE, by searching by Priority Country Code = 'IB' and limiting the results to PCT applications:

An industrial design priority document (from Spain), was loaded as an additional sample document coming from an external office, published document information available here:

Sample Postman Collection:

The sample collection can be downloaded from here (*): DAS core services.postman_collection

Sample Postman environment:

The sample environment can be downloaded from here (*): das ACC.postman_environment

In order to automate the process, the environment configuration (and some internal test) have been set up to facilitate the saving of temporal information.
