[bioontology-support] BioPortal API changed?

Ben, this looks like a real issue, unrelated to anything yesterday. If you are providing your key in place of MY_KEY_HERE then at a casual look it should work. One of us can take a closer look at that if the link to the General Info I sent yesterday doesn't help you.

I am interested in your observation "but was unable to navigate to my account page after logging in". Can you describe in more detail what you tried, maybe offer a screen shot?  When I navigate to the menu item <my account name> / Account Settings, it works fine.

I'm trying to access our ontology using the API and have newly encountered an error with my API key. I thought perhaps I was issued a new key, but was unable to navigate to my account page after logging in.
Is this a known issue and is there an estimate when it will be resolved?

Thank you!

For example...


Returns this:
• "status": 401,
• "error": "You must provide a valid API Key. Your API Key can be obtained by logging in at"
