Dear Michael, others,
Thank you for your quick response back on the 12th of March, I appreciate it. First and foremost I hope you’re all doing well under the current circumstances.
I stumbled upon something what seems like a discrepancy between the mappings returned by the API calling "/ontologies/:ontology/classes/:cls/mappings” and "/mappings?ontologies=ONT1,ONT2”. When I try to get mappings between a pair of ontologies involving SNOMED CT, I get different results.
For example, I want to check if this mappings exists in BioPortal: http://www.orpha.net/ORDO/Orphanet_3389 = http://purl.bioontology.org/ontology/SNOMEDCT/56717001. I can use the API calling
or http://data.bioontology.org/mappings?ontologies=ORDO,SNOMEDCT and check if the mapping exists. However, when I compare the returned set from the API calls above with https://bioportal.bioontology.org/ontologies/ORDO?p=classes&conceptid=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.orpha.net%2FORDO%2FOrphanet_3389#mappings<https://bioportal.bioontology.org/ontologies/ORDO?p=classes&conceptid=http://www.orpha.net/ORDO/Orphanet_3389#mappings> I noticed the following:
* The mapping exists according to the class mappings on the webpage, referring to URI http://purl.bioontology.org/ontology/SNOMEDCT/56717001 and SNOMEDCT.
* The mapping exists according to http://data.bioontology.org/ontologies/ORDO/classes/http%3A%2F%2Fwww.orpha.net%2FORDO%2FOrphanet_3389/mappings<http://data.bioontology.org/ontologies/ORDO/classes/http://www.orpha.net/ORDO/Orphanet_3389/mappings>, however, using different URI (http://snomed.info/id/56717001) and referring to ontology SNO_COPY which is not accessible.
* The mappings doesn’t exist according to http://data.bioontology.org/mappings?ontologies=ORDO,SNOMEDCT.
I decided to only use mappings from http://data.bioontology.org/mappings?ontologies=ORDO,SNOMEDCT, but that still makes me wonder why the webpage shows SNOMED CT mappings that are not returned by the API in the same way (point 1 vs. point 2). Am I missing something? I checked http://data.bioontology.org/mappings?ontologies=ORDO,SNO_COPY, which is returning an empty set.
I was hoping that you could help me to clarify this. Thank you in advance! Please know that you have my full understanding if it’s not possible to answer my email due to the coronavirus.

Thank you for alerting us to this issue. We’ve had an operational outage yesterday that triggered a full rebuild of our Annotator/Recommender database. The services have now been fully restored. Please try your API calls again and let us know if you run into any further issues.
Thank you so much for your patience.

Both the annotator and the recommender don't return any results. A few hours ago the website had some brief downtime and did not accept API-calls.
