The table below describes properties which are supported by almost all API resources and used for identification purposes.
|Internal unique identifier of a resource. This property exists in all resources which support retrieval/update/delete of a single record of particular type. Depending on a resource it can hold either an integer or a string value. The resource ID is also passed as a path parameter in the URI
|Canonical URI of a resource. This URI might not be the same as the one which was used to retrieve this resource information. For example, if a resource was accessed by the URI containing simplified syntax with the tilde (~) characters, the canonical URI will also contain real identifiers.
