Type of Term: rdfs:Property
Usage Note:
The globally unique identifier may take the form of a URN, UUID, ARK, DOI, INFO or any other publicly recognized, globally unique identifier scheme. The value of the credentialId property is the equivalent of a version identifier for the credential. Different versions of a credential are considered distinct expressions. Where the credentialId property is used, no two versions of a credential may share the same credentialId value. However, a single version of a credential may have distinct identifier values for both the credentialId property and the ctid property. In such a case both identifiers will be recognized by the credential creator/owner/provider in transactions with the external environment.

Usage Note:
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.
