[bioontology-support] Questions regarding the REST API

Hi Michael,

Glad to be of help :)

I had a question by the way related to this. When I query: vs<>G (in both cases I was trying to get an error), the format is the same, but you get a different type of error string ("access denied" vs "no valid acronym") and I was wondering why that is.

BR, John.

Hi John,

Thank you, that's a great catch! Indeed, the error response should have a consistent output, and what you're seeing is a bug. I've logged it here:

Thanks again for your report. We very much appreciate it!

  *   "status": 401,

which is different than the "standard" you mention:

"errors": [
     *   "The search query must be provided via /search?q=<query>[&page=<pagenum>&pagesize=<pagesize>]"
  *   "status": 400
