[bioontology-support] Two questions about using API

Hi Reza,

We have updated our HTTPS configuration to include complete SSL certificate chain so as of now API should be compatible with iOS devices.

Subject: [bioontology-support] Two questions about using API


First thank you for providing such a useful resource! I'm using the API in the app that I'm developing ( and I have two questions:

1- Currently I have the API key residing inside my app to allow it to download bioontology data when users access the website. Therefore it's practically public. Is this the recommended way to use the API key for Javascript apps?

2- I'm using the HTTPS version of the urls to access the API (e.g.<>). This generally works fine but for some reason Safari on iOS devices blocks the calls to the API due to "invalid certificate for<>". Is this a known issue and if so, is there a workaround to circumvent it?

Thanks in advance for your help.
