A provider does not need to provide this ID during registration or update. This is a unique ID which EOSC Portal assigns to a resource registered in the Registry and it is used to identify a resource in the EOSC portal. In next releases, Providers can use a PID; i.e., PID Providers will offer PID services to Resource Providers to reach a point that the EOSC portal will use global PIDs.
