Add-in not connecting to databases

Mar 31, 2011 at 7:19 PM

I'm hoping this project is still monitored. I tried installing this Add-in to see if it's something that we can adapt for our knowledge management initiative. When I bring up the configuration for the add-in I don't see any ontologies though. It will not let me load an obo file, and the form does not close when I click 'Ok'. I thought this might be my setup, as my workstation is behind a proxy, but I'm seeing the same behavior at home.

Is this expected with the add-in at the moment? Or did I miss something when installing it?

Thank you,

Nick Thorpe

Thanks for reaching out.  There was a recent change to the NCBO ontology webservice that broke this add-in.  Our engineers have the fix ready and should have this pushed out (in the binary and source code) in the next week.  Apologies for the inconvenience!

Thanks for responding so quickly! I'll look forward to trying the new version when it's ready. Quick question though while I have your ear: Should the data connector you're using work behind a proxy (as configured in iexplore)? Or will I need to try the add-in on a network that isn't proxified?

Yes, it should be routing these http requests through your proxy configuration, but let me verify this and get back to you.
