2.1.26.7 Resource CanonicalResource - Content

FHIR Infrastructure icon Work GroupMaturity Level: N Normative (from v4.2.0)Security Category: N/A Compartments: Not linked to any defined compartments

Common Interface declaration for conformance and knowledge artifact resources.

The CanonicalResource represents resources that have a canonical URL:

  • They have a canonical URL (note: all resources with a canonical URL are specializations of this type)
  • They have version, status, and data properties to help manage their publication
  • They carry some additional metadata about their use, including copyright information

As an interface, this type is never created directly - see Resource Interfaces for more details.
