[bioontology-support] BioPortal down for upload ontologies

Hi again Nikola,

I realized that your account name was displayed in the screenshot you sent. I queried our system for ontologies that you’re listed as an administrator for, and found the following:


Is RNR-VOCAB the ontology entry that you’re referring to? If so, it appears that the entry was created in our backend, but the submission failed to upload. You should be able to use the following steps to attempt another submission upload:

1. Log into BioPortal
2. Navigate to the ontology summary page (
3. Click the “Add submission” button (plus sign) at the top of the Submissions table
4. Fill out the “Add new submission” form, and click the Add submission button.

If you’re still having difficulty, please send me the ontology source file, and I’ll try to troubleshoot from this end. Or, if you’re referring to some other ontology than what I listed above, let me know.

Kind regards,

Hello Nikola,

Do you remember the acronym of the ontology you were trying to create? Alternatively, do you know under what account name you tried to submit the ontology? I can check our system to see if the entry succeeded or not, and do any necessary repairs to the object.

Kind regards,

One of the exercises is the registration of new ontology in BioPortal.

When doing the exercise we encountered the following screen once we pressed button submit new ontology:

Any idea when this will be fixed?

We have the second day of the M4M workshop this Thursday and we are sort of desperate to register the ontology in BioPortal so we can use it in CEDAR.
