How can we update the smdInclusion flags?

Please be aware that the SMD Inclusion flag can only be set when a Proof of Use document has been uploaded (this can be done at any time except if the Mark record is being verified or is expired).

When enabling or disabling the smdInclusion flag(s) you need to follow the next steps in the exact order, in separate commands:

 

  • Remove the label(s);
  • Add the label(s) again with the smdInclusion flags enabled or disabled.

More specifically, to do this please send an update command with a <rem> section to delete the specific label(s) followed by an update <add> command to add the label(s) again with the appropriate flags set.

 

This procedure is relevant for the API v1. For the API v2 a simple update command can be used.
