[bioontology-support] Access Code Notations via REST API

Hi Zak,

Thank you for contacting us. You can retrieve this info programmatically in one of these two ways:

1. Using the /classes endpoint:,synonym,definition,notation,cui,semanticType,properties&no_links=true&no_context=true&page=1


2. Using the /search endpoint:,synonym,definition,notation,cui,semanticType,properties&no_links=true&no_context=true&page=1

In the latter example, the results are being sorted by the prefLabel alphabetically. In your Python script, you can iterate over ALL ontology terms by processing the results one page at a time and incrementing the “page=1” parameter on each subsequent call.

The ICD10 code is stored in the field “notation”.

For the actual Python code, you can use some of the examples below as your starting point:

Let us know if you have additional questions.

Hi –

Is there any way to use the REST API to get a comprehensive listing off all codes/notations within a given class?

For example, if I want to get a complete listing of all possible ICD10 codes from the API using python- is that possible?
