Hi Trish,

Subject: Re: [bioontology-support] OR search using RESTful API

There appears to be a bug when trying to use OR with the Search API as the results returned appear to be the same as when using AND. This issue is now reported: https://bmir-gforge.stanford.edu/gf/project/ncbo/tracker/?action=TrackerItemEdit&tracker_item_id=4391&start=0

I am still reviewing examples of NOT with the Search API.

Trish

Hello,
Can you please provide an example of using the OR  or NOT operation as the current syntax at
http://www.bioontology.org/wiki/index.php/BioPortal_REST_services#Search_BioPortal

  *   Boolean Search Options:

     *   () parentheses allow to enclose multiple terms joined by OR
*  Example: "(foo bar)" will expand to "foo* OR bar*"

     *   - the minus sign preceding a term indicates NOT
*  Example: "foo bar -baz" will expand to "foo* AND bar* AND NOT baz*"

     *   No prefix means MUST (required).

does not work for me. If always return results of  an AND operation between the 2  terms
rest.bioontology.org/bioportal/search/?query=<http://rest.bioontology.org/bioportal/search/?query=>(LEG ARM)&apikey=
rest.bioontology.org/bioportal/search/?query=LEG<http://rest.bioontology.org/bioportal/search/?query=LEG> -ARM&apikey=
rest.bioontology.org/bioportal/search/?query=LEG<http://rest.bioontology.org/bioportal/search/?query=LEG> ARM&apikey=

all return 260 results for where only both arm and leg are present
