1.19 DomainResource Resource

1.19.1 Scope and Usage

A domain resource is an resource that:

As an abstract resource, this resource never exists directly, only one of its descendent resources (list).

1.19.2 Boundaries and Relationships

This resource extends the base resource. All of the listed resources except Bundle and Binary extend this resource.

1.19.3 Resource Content

DomainResource (Resource)A human-readable narrative that contains a summary of the resource, and may be used to represent the content of the resource to a human.

1.19.3.1 Constraints

  • dom-1: If the resource is contained in another resource, it SHALL NOT contain any narrative (xpath: not(parent::f:contained and f:text))
  • dom-2: If the resource is contained in another resource, it SHALL NOT contain nested Resources (xpath: not(parent::f:contained and f:contained))
  • dom-3: If the resource is contained in another resource, it SHALL be referred to from elsewhere in the resource (xpath: not(exists(for $id in f:contained/*/@id return $id[not(ancestor::f:contained/parent::*/descendant::f:reference/@value=concat('#', $id))])))
  • dom-4: If a resource is contained in another resource, it SHALL NOT have a meta.versionId or a meta.lastUpdated (xpath: not(exists(f:contained/f:meta/f:versionId)) and not(exists(f:contained/f:meta/f:lastUpdated)))

1.19.4 Search Parameters

This resource doesn't define any common Search parameters

To search for extensions, define a search parameter for the extension. All other search parameters are named aliases for existing content in the resource. In some cases, though not all, the search parameter name is the same as the element that it searches, but this is not required. Searching for extensions is the same - define a name that identifies the value extension by its URL, and then searches can filter based on the value of the extension.
