Within an archive, facts are organized in components, and these components are grouped in sections. In a fiscal filing, for example, there is very often a section for a balance sheet, for an income statement, etc.
Sections contain the metadata (report elements) used and shared by all its components.
Sections are identified with a URI.
We provide a complete reference to the REST API for sections.
Sections can be seen as sheets of a spreadsheet.
In each section (extended link role), presentation networks should fulfill a consistency requirement in the way they organize report elements.
Parent-child relationships between report elements are only allowed as follows (column headers are parents, row headers are children).
