Ahmed, as your API key got shared in a publically visible mailing list, can you please change it? The means to do so is on your profile page.

Hello Ahmed,

Apologies, but I have no knowledge of what the ClinCapture system is, so I can’t comment on whether you’ve correctly entered data there.

What I can tell you is how to test whether your BioPortal account is working properly. You should be able to enter a URL for our REST API in a browser and see response data displayed. For example, if you enter the following URL in a browser (enter your API key at the end where I’ve indicated):

You should see a JSON response like this:

Hello Ahmed,

I’m not sure I understand exactly what you’re looking for. You can browse MEDDRA via the BioPortal application here:

Or, you can use our REST API to programmatically access the ontology:

Use of the REST API requires that you have an API key. Instructions for getting an API key are available on our wiki:

The API is documented here:

Kind regards

I need "Bioontology URL" for MEDDRA to use it through ClinCapture EDC System.
We already have an MSSO account
Appreciate your help.
