Confirmed. This is a very strange bug. We will look into this tomorrow. I don’t think that it will be difficult to fix.

Dear Support,

while using the bioportal REST API I noticed an appartent inconsistency between the results reported by two different APIs.

The search API:

returns several terms. Among them the term "" with only one synonym:

synonym": [
"Autosomal dominant"

Instead, if I look at the entry alone


I can find three different synonyms:

synonym": [
"Autosomal dominant",

Is this correct? I could not find any reference about it in the documentation and was wondering if this might be considered as a bug of the API.

I would definitely need the search API to return all synonyms.

Let me know.

Roberto Mosca
