Thanks Jennifer, I can see it now. I must have been checking before the 5-minute refresh. This is good information to have, thank you!

When you change an ontology's visibility from Private to Public, how long should it take to be able to use that ontology in CEDAR to create templates?
I submitted the ontology FISH-AST as a Private ontology. A few minutes ago I changed the ontology's visibility to Public. I cannot find the ontology when searching from the CEDAR template creator. I tried logging out of CEDAR and back in, and also tried creating a new template (rather than adding a field to existing template), and still can't see this ontology.

When you change an ontology from private to public in BioPortal, it takes effect immediately.

I spoke with the CEDAR team and they mentioned that they cache the list of ontology names from BioPortal, but that the cache is updated every 5 minutes. So, there shouldn’t be more than a few minutes of delay before you can use your ontology and associated terms in CEDAR. I also worked with someone on the CEDAR team to see if we could see your ontology in the template creator, and the FISH-AST ontology and terms were showing up here.

Are you still experiencing issues?

Kind regards,
