Hello Sina,

Thank you very much Jennifer for the explanation.
It turned out the Audio module of the Virtual machine was causing the instance to pause and go into hibernation. After I disabled that module the appliance started parsing ontologies immediately.
I tested loading and parsing LOINC and RxNorm so far and everything seems fine. However, both terminology names are showing as “unknown” under submission section. I only filled out the mandatory fields though.

If you want the UI to display a version number, you can go to any ontology summary page, click the “Edit submission information” link, enter a value in the “VERSION” field, and click the Save submission button.

Also, I guess the current UMLS2RDF does not include obsolete concepts so there is no function in the API to query for the status of a given concepts. Is that right? Do you have any suggestion/workaround for us?

I’m not sure I’m following your question. Could you give me an example of a concept you know to be obsolete that isn’t being displayed in BioPortal?

Also, if you issue a REST call against the classes endpoint using the “include=all” parameter, the API will show whether or not a concept is obsolete, as well as a list of all properties with their values. Here’s an example of a REST call to retrieve the “Surveys” class from LOINC:<>

… and a screen shot of the result:

Is the information you’re looking for contained in this result?

Kind regards,
