Is there a way to to identify obsolete terms in the REST output?
The OBO version of DO has an is_obsolete tag on this term, but I don't
see it in the BioPortal REST ouput. I could use a proxy of having no
relationships for the moment, but would be easier if some sort of flag
was set in there.
The problem for us here is that obsolete terms are returned in a search
query when we try to map user annotation values to external ontologies,
so looking for a way to filter those out.
Also once the obsolete term is identified the OBO consider/replaced_by
tags would really come in handy, as in this example
By the way, is the get term by virtual ontology id method being
deprecated? I just noticed it's no longer mentioned in the docs:
All help very much appreciated!
