NAME

SemanticWeb::Schema::Thing - The most generic type of item.

VERSION

version v6.0.1

DESCRIPTION

The most generic type of item.

ATTRIBUTES

additional_type

additionalType

An additional type for the item, typically used for adding more specific types from external vocabularies in microdata syntax. This is a relationship between something and a class that the thing is in. In RDFa syntax, it is better to use the native RDFa syntax - the 'typeof' attribute - for multiple types. Schema.org tools may have only weaker understanding of extra types, in particular those defined externally.

A additional_type should be one of the following types:

Str

_has_additional_type

A predicate for the "additional_type" attribute.

alternate_name

alternateName

An alias for the item.

A alternate_name should be one of the following types:

Str

_has_alternate_name

A predicate for the "alternate_name" attribute.

description

A description of the item.

A description should be one of the following types:

Str

_has_description

A predicate for the "description" attribute.

disambiguating_description

disambiguatingDescription

A sub property of description. A short description of the item used to disambiguate from other, similar items. Information from other properties (in particular, name) may be necessary for the description to be useful for disambiguation.

A disambiguating_description should be one of the following types:

Str

_has_disambiguating_description

A predicate for the "disambiguating_description" attribute.

identifier

The identifier property represents any kind of identifier for any kind of Thing, such as ISBNs, GTIN codes, UUIDs etc. Schema.org provides dedicated properties for representing many of these, either as textual strings or as URL (URI) links. See background notes for more details.

A identifier should be one of the following types:

InstanceOf['SemanticWeb::Schema::PropertyValue']
Str

_has_identifier

A predicate for the "identifier" attribute.

image

An image of the item. This can be a URL or a fully described ImageObject.

A image should be one of the following types:

InstanceOf['SemanticWeb::Schema::ImageObject']
Str

_has_image

A predicate for the "image" attribute.

main_entity_of_page

mainEntityOfPage

Indicates a page (or other CreativeWork) for which this thing is the main entity being described. See background notes for details.

A main_entity_of_page should be one of the following types:

InstanceOf['SemanticWeb::Schema::CreativeWork']
Str

_has_main_entity_of_page

A predicate for the "main_entity_of_page" attribute.

name

The name of the item.

A name should be one of the following types:

Str

_has_name

A predicate for the "name" attribute.

potential_action

potentialAction

Indicates a potential Action, which describes an idealized action in which this thing would play an 'object' role.

A potential_action should be one of the following types:

InstanceOf['SemanticWeb::Schema::Action']

_has_potential_action

A predicate for the "potential_action" attribute.

same_as

sameAs

URL of a reference Web page that unambiguously indicates the item's identity. E.g. the URL of the item's Wikipedia page, Wikidata entry, or official website.

A same_as should be one of the following types:

Str

_has_same_as

A predicate for the "same_as" attribute.

subject_of

subjectOf

A CreativeWork or Event about this Thing.

A subject_of should be one of the following types:

InstanceOf['SemanticWeb::Schema::CreativeWork']
InstanceOf['SemanticWeb::Schema::Event']

_has_subject_of

Str

_has_url

A predicate for the "url" attribute.
