Dataset
This page describes the Dataset type.

EARLY RELEASE NOTICE

This class represents a draft that is designed to inform the OpenActive specification work with implementation feedback. It is mostly stable, as it based almost entirely on schema.org. HOWEVER, IT IS STILL SUBJECT TO CHANGE, as the Dataset API Discovery specification evolves.
This type is derived from https://schema.org/Dataset, which means that any of this type's properties within schema.org may also be used. Note however the properties on this page must be used in preference if a relevant property is available.

Properties

Required properties

Property
Expected Type
Description
@type
Text
Must always be present and set to "@type": "Dataset"
@id
URL
A unique URI-based identifier for the record.
@id properties are used as identifiers for compatibility with JSON-LD. The value of such a property must always be an absolute URI that provides a stable globally unique identifier for the resource, as described in RFC3986.
The primary purpose of the URI format in this context is to provide natural namespacing for the identifier. Hence, the URI itself may not resolve to a valid endpoint, but must use a domain name controlled by the resource owner (the organisation responsible for the OpenActive open data feed).
Example
"@id": "https://opendata.fusion-lifestyle.com/OpenActive/"
description
