Identifiers for resources, releases and parties
DDEX supports the communication of different identifiers for different purposes. Below please find a table of permissible identifiers for some of the entities:
ISRC (see below)
Entries marked with an asterisk are proprietary identifiers and therefore need to be accompanied by a namespace attribute,
Do not use an ISRC as a Release Identifier
In the past, ISRCs have been used to identify Releases that contain only one primary Resource (e.g. single track releases such as RIngtones):
<ReleaseId> <ISRC>BRBMG0300729</ISRC> </ReleaseId>
In that case the code BRBMG0300729 is a "displaced identifier" (the identifier of the sole primary resource used as a proxy identifier for the Release). This use is being deprocated and the ISRC element may be removed from the ReleaseId composite in the future.
