Hi John,

The "labelGenerated" is an artificial attribute, stored in the search index exclusively, and has a dual purpose:

1. Provide a reference point for properties, like the one you found, where a formal label for the property isn't defined.
2. Store an additional string for a property that would improve its searchability. For example:

The idea is for the property with the label "contains process" to be found when one searches on "bfo_0000067". The search does give more weight to the actual defined label rather than the generated label.

"labelGenerated" is defined for ALL properties stored in our index; it will never have an empty value.

I noticed that there are results like this one:, that do not have a `label` property. Is it possible to also not have a `labelGenerated` property? Are there such properties defined in some ontology in BioPortal?

BR, John.
