THIS DATA OBJECT MODEL CLASS IS DEPRECATED - Use %DynamicObject or HS.FHIRObject.* instead.
A definition of a FHIR structure. This resource is used to describe the underlying resources, data types defined in FHIR, and also for describing extensions and constraints on resources and data types.
If the element is present, it must have either a @value, an @id, or extensions
Inherited description: ELEMENTQUALIFIED controls the format of exported XML.
The ELEMENTQUALIFIED specification should be based on the elementFormDefault attribute of the
schema that defines the type.
To maintain compatibility, ELEMENTQUALIFIED will default to 1 (true) for literal format export
and will default to 0 (false) for encoded or encoded12 format export.
These were the values always previously assumed for the elementFormDefault attribute.
NOTE: Direct use of XMLExport method does not support the ELEMENTQUALIFIED. The export must be
done using %XML.Writer or SOAP support.
parameter XMLNAME = StructureDefinition;
Inherited description: This parameter provides the default XMLNAME for the class. If it is
empty then the class name will be used to construct a default XML name.
The default XMLNAME is used as the top level tag
when exporting objects and the export context
did not provide an XML container name.
parameter XMLSEQUENCE = 1;
Inherited description: If the XMLSEQUENCE = 1, then the order of the XML elements must match the
order of the class properties. This allows us to deal with XML where the
same field appears multiple times and is distinguished by the order.
Whether structure this definition describes is abstract or not - that is, whether the structure is not intended to be instantiated. For Resources and Data types, abstract types will never be exchanged between systems.
The date (and optionally time) when the structure definition was published. The date must change if and when the business version changes and it must change if the status code changes. In addition, it should change when the substantive content of the structure definition changes.
The version of the FHIR specification on which this StructureDefinition is based - this is the formal version of the specification, without the revision number, e.g. [publication].[major].[minor], which is 3.0.1 for this version.
The type this structure describes. If the derivation kind is 'specialization' then this is the master definition for a type, and there is always one of these (a data type, an extension, a resource, including abstract ones). Otherwise the structure definition is a constraint on the stated type (and in this case, the type cannot be an abstract type).
An absolute URI that is used to identify this structure definition when it is referenced in a specification, model, design or an instance. This SHALL be a URL, SHOULD be globally unique, and SHOULD be an address at which this structure definition is (or will be) published. The URL SHOULD include the major version of the structure definition. For more information see [Technical and Business Versions](resource.html#versions).
The content was developed with a focus and intent of supporting the contexts that are listed. These terms may be used to assist with indexing and searching for appropriate structure definition instances.
The identifier that is used to identify this version of the structure definition when it is referenced in a specification, model, design or instance. This is an arbitrary value managed by the structure definition 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. There is also no expectation that versions can be placed in a lexicographical sequence.
