[bioontology-support] 500 error

just worked for me.

I need to find the parent code for each medDRA concept code, Is there an easier way to accomplish this without hitting your server for every term.

Hi Himanso,

The "rootpath" call [1] requires the parameter "conceptId", which for the term "Melanoma" in MedDRA is "10053571" and therefore the call should be formatted as:

However, this call returns an empty list. I'll need to check with the developers to see if the RQ relationship is also considered as a parent relationship and whether this call is expected to return "Malignant melanoma" as a parent.
