[bioontology-support] Bioportal Image at USC, Columbia - how to delete ontologies

By firing the 2 http calls (here under), the submissions and ontology are
removed from BioPortal UI and from REST services responses, but the files
are still there in :



Is-it safe to delete them manually ?

Should that be done automatically when calling the REST services ?

Dear all, 


An alternative way of doing it (thru the REST API) is:


1. Delete submission(s) with:




In which you replace 1 by your submission number and repeat for each


2. Delete ontology with:


&acronym=ACRO> &acronym=ACRO


Should be working ;)

Please follow the instructions here for deleting an ontology:



Let me know if you have any questions or problems.

I am Nikhil and is part of a team working on a virtual image (using the one
provided by bioportal) at the Computer Science Department at USC, Columbia
SC. This project is being administered under the guidance of the Dept Chair
Dr. Micheal N Huhns and Dr. Pat O'keefe.

We have been successful in setting up the image and it pretty much is
running smoothly. However, we cannot figure out how to delete an ontology. I
have used the bioportal before and recall contacting the support team to get
an ontology deleted. So, I understand there is something that we need to do
as an admin.

Please through some light on this. Thanks!
