System Resource Names - Referencing objects within Wyre's platform

System Resource Name (SRN)

SRN stands for System Resource Name. It is a typed identifier that may reference any object within the Wyre platform. Many of our API calls and data schemas leverage SRNs in order to add flexibility and decouple services. All SRNs follow the same URI-like format:
