[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from Jean

I confess I am uncertain about what might is causing this, but I can ask some useful questions that will help our team troubleshoot more next week.

The clearest picture would be to see the logs corresponding to those requests, ideally from the Apache or similar logs. The requests from your NiFi flow almost certainly will look different in some way.

Is it possible there are two ontologies that look almost the same, and the flow is asking for the second ontology which only has one submission?  Or alternatively, there are two Bioportal instances and the Apache flow is accessing an instance with only one submission for that ontology?

The more concrete details you can provide, the better our chance of coming up with useful suggestions.

Hello, I'm facing a problem while using BioPortal API and was wondering if you can get me some clarification.

I have BP installed in one server for dev purposes and while I use the URL to GET all children of the master node of our Ontology, it works well (testing in Postman or Firefox or curl).

However, our Ontology has 3 submissions. When another application (an Apache NiFi flow) makes the http GET request with exactly the same URL, in returns only data from the FIRST submission. It should return the data of the latest submission, of course.

Can you get any direction? Is there any parameter or something like that I should configure to prevent this to happen?

Thank you for your attention.
Best regards
