|−|When storing an ontology using the BioPortal Ontology Services, some amount of processing is done automatically so that the ontologies can be visualized using the Web UI. However, the Annotator and Resource Index require separate, manual data population workflows in order to function with the provided ontologies. Details on running these populations can be found in the "Howto" sections located at the bottom of this page. | |

OntoPortal Virtual Appliance Version 3.0 is here!
We are pleased to softly announce our soft release of the OntoPortal Virtual Appliance version 3.0 (3.0.1, to be precise).
This release includes lots of new capabilities, one of which involves licensing. The good news is that you can download and get started with your Virtual Appliance right away—no need to wait for us to give you access to the right page.
In order to do this, we had to implement licensing for BioPortal. Most users will find it trivial to obtain a free license, but for commercial users we are evaluating whether license fees could make BioPortal more sustainable.
To learn more about the new OntoPortal Virtual Appliance release, visit our Getting Started page.

including the General Introduction, Licensing, and Installation sections.
Virtual Appliance Administration Documentation: Moved to GitHub
Our Administration documentation for the OntoPortal Virtual Appliance has been moved to the GitHub pages document at https://ontoportal.github.io/administration/.
OntoPortal Virtual Appliance v2.5 archive is available
For previous registered users of the v2.5 OntoPortal Virtual Appliance, we maintain an archival copy of this software on our site. While we do not actively support this version because its libraries are outdated, we still make it available to those users who were previously authorized to use it. All new users of the Virtual Appliance should use Version 3 or later of the Appliance.
The OntoPortal Virtual Appliance is the (rebranded) update of the BioPortal Virtual Appliance originally developed by the National Center for Biomedical Ontologies (NCBO). Our current Virtual Appliance software is based on BioPortal's v5.x software infrastructure, including the use of an RDF triplestore as the primary data storage mechanism.
Even older archive
For documentation of previous (v1.0) Virtual Appliances, please see our archive.
