  • vann:usageNote: Added
    en-US The CTID is the equivalent of a version identifier for the resource. Different versions of a resource are considered distinct expressions and each must be assigned its own CTID. Each version of a resource can have only one CTID assigned. However, a single version of a resource may have distinct identifier values for both the ctid property and the credentialId property. In such a case both identifiers will be recognized by the resource creator/owner/provider in transactions with the external environment.

  • vann:usageNote: Removed
    en-US A CTID is resolved through the CRS returning the Credential Registry data describing the identified credential. The CTID is the equivalent of a version identifier for the credential. Different versions of a credential are considered distinct expressions and each must be assigned its own CTID. Each version of a credential can have only one CTID assigned by the Credential Registry Service (CRS) upon registration with the Credential Registry. However, a single version of a credential may have distinct identifier values for both the ctid property and the credentialId property. In such a case both identifiers will be recognized by the credential creator/owner/provider in transactions with the external environment.
