[bioontology-support] 403 Forbidden response when accessing Annotator webservice

Hi Bioportal Support --

I'm getting a 403 Forbidden response when querying the Bioportal, saying it
requires a valid API key.  But I think I'm using the correct API key, as
it works for the search service.  The example webclient works, so the
service appears to be working.  What am I likely missing?


*curl* -X POST -d '{ "ontologiesToKeepInResult": "1353,1423","format":
"xml","textToAnnotate": "35 yo male with acne vulgaris and inflammatory

where MYAPIKEY is the one shown for me on

The result I get is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<accessDate>2013-05-13 12:31:10.891 PDT</accessDate>
<longMessage>A valid API key is required to call REST services. Please
visit to get your API key.</
