Evidence (DomainResource)An absolute URI that is used to identify this evidence when it is referenced in a specification, model, design or an instance; also called its canonical identifier. This SHOULD be globally unique and SHOULD be a literal address at which at which an authoritative instance of this summary is (or will be) published. This URL can be the target of a canonical reference. It SHALL remain the same when the summary is stored on different serversurl : uri [0..1]A formal identifier that is used to identify this summary when it is represented in other formats, or referenced in a specification, model, design or an instanceidentifier : Identifier [0..*]The identifier that is used to identify this version of the summary when it is referenced in a specification, model, design or instance. This is an arbitrary value managed by the summary author and is not expected to be globally unique. For example, it might be a timestamp (e.g. yyyymmdd) if a managed version is not available.

Evidence (DomainResource)An absolute URI that is used to identify this evidence when it is referenced in a specification, model, design or an instance; also called its canonical identifier.
