createValidate for CreateThe server checks the content, and then checks that the content would be acceptable as a create (e.g. that the content would not violate any uniqueness constraints).
updateValidate for UpdateThe server checks the content, and then checks that it would accept it as an update against the nominated specific resource (e.g. that there are no changes to immutable fields the server does not allow to change and checking version integrity if appropriate).
deleteValidate for DeleteThe server ignores the content and checks that the nominated resource is allowed to be deleted (e.g. checking referential integrity rules).
profileValidate Against a ProfileThe server checks an existing resource (must be nominated by id, not provided as a parameter) as valid against the nominated profile.

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

LvlA few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. For value sets, levels are mostly used to organize codes for user convenience, but may follow code system hierarchy - see Code System for further information
SourceThe source of the definition of the code (when the value set draws in codes defined elsewhere)
CodeThe code (used as the code in the resource instance). If the code is in italics, this indicates that the code is not selectable ('Abstract')
DisplayThe display (used in the display element of a Coding). If there is no display, implementers should not simply display the code, but map the concept into their application
