[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from ulfschwarz

Hello Ulf,

Unfortunately, changing acronyms isn’t allowed. They are used as unique and unchangeable identifiers in the system. The only way to do this would be to create a new ontology entry with your desired acronym. Acronyms in BioPortal are always uppercase. Using VDOT_CORE is an option, though that’s the one you just asked me to delete. Let us know what you’d like to do.

Kind regards,

Thanks a lot Jennifer,

It looks fine now. I would like to change the acronym from VDOT to VDOT_core. How can I do that?

Best regards,

Yes, I would like to delete both VDOT_CORE and TES

OK - I’ve deleted both of those ontology entries from our system.

and I would like to keep Viral Disease Ontology Trunk. Additionally I would like to change its setting from private to public once I checked that everything is fine.

It looks like the upload for the Viral Disease Ontology Trunk Ontology was successful now. Am I right?

No, I didn’t see any submissions associated with VDOT. I manually created one using the pull URL that you sent in a previous email, which seemed to process without errors. You can examine the result and let us know if you see any issues:

Kind regards,
