[bioontology-support] "leafpath" query on ontology 1352 (National Drug File)

Hi Trish,

Thank you for your help. The query does work with the term identifier you specified.

But I do not know where this identifier comes from? It is not the concept id.
For instance, the concept id for the "B [Preparations]" term in "National Drug File" is listed as "N0000010584", here:[Preparations]&ontologyids=1352&isexactmatch=1&objecttypes=class,individual&apikey=XXX

The "leafpath" API takes a "conceptId" as parameter:
"Signature: ./virtual/[rootpath|leafpath]/{ontologyId}/{conceptId}[?apikey={YourAPIKey}&{optional args}] "

My point is that this does not seem to apply for "National Drug File", and I cannot obtain the term identifiers that you mentioned (like C288628).
Am I missing something?

Thank you,
Adrian Bivol.

Hi Adrian,

The term identifier in this case is: C288628 and when used in the "leafpath" web service call it does return results.

I am trying to run "leafpath" queries on ontology 1352 (National Drug File).
All my queries are returning Internal Server Error (500); for example:

My goal is to obtain all the children nodes of "Pharmaceutical Preparations", concept id: N0000000001. (gives the same error)

Can you advise on this issue?

Thank you,
Adrian Bivol.
