[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from mfortner

Hi Mark,

Thank you for contacting us. You should be able to retrieve the fields that you need by either using the query parameter “display=all” or, if you don’t want all the attributes returned, “display=prefLabel,synonym,properties”. Example:

A shorter version:

An even shorter version:,synonym,properties&no_context=true&no_links=true

Then, under “properties”, just look for the field(s) you need that contains your regular expression(s).

I'm working on a script to fetch a select set of class entries from the EDAM ontology and the BAO. I'd like to be able to fetch the regular expression and examples used to validate some fields. For example, the UniProt accession field has a regular expression. Is there a way to fetch these data as well? Here's the API call I was making:
