Suppose changes are made to the VIVO core ontology through the web interface on one VIVO instance, and these changes are needed in another instance. For example, changes are made in a development instance, tested, and approved for deployment in production. Changes may include:
The procedure below describes how such changes can be replicated between instances.
In the steps below, instance #1 is the the instance that contains the changes you have made to the core ontology. Instance #2 is the instance you wish to copy the ontology changes to.
Semantic additions to the core ontology (new classes and properties) should made in a local ontology, isolated from the core ontology. Additions should be discussed on firstname.lastname@example.org to insure they are necessary and represent common ontological practice. Edits to the core ontology should be rare.
