ORCID members can update information they’ve previously added to an ORCID record. Only one item can be updated at a time, and it can only be updated using the client credentials that created it in the first place.
To facilitate updating, make sure you store the put code and access token when creating items.
Format the updated item in ORCID message schema with the changed information and include the stored put code.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <employment:employment put-code="739288" [...]> [...] </employment:employment>
Call the API:
Method: PUT Content-type: application/vnd.orcid+xml or application/vnd.orcid+jsonnAuthorization type and Access token: Bearer [stored access token]Data: link to file or text of affiliation to update URL: https://api.sandbox.orcid.org/v3.0/[ORCID iD]/employment/739288
The API will return a 200 OK message to indicate that the item updated correctly. Check our troubleshooting page if a different message is returned.
