How to create a Resource ID?

The Resource ID is used by iHome to identify a resource from other resources and favorites.

A Resource ID should be unique in the scope of your all resources and favorites, i.e. when you create resource, iHome will scan all Resource IDs and Favorite IDs for duplication.

The requirements for the Resource ID are listed here:

  1. Resource ID must be 2 - 15 characters long;

  2. It is case insensitive, i.e. a is equal to A;

  3. Resource ID must contain only:

    • The English letters a - z and A - Z;

    • The digits 0 - 9;

    All other characters will be rejected by the iHome service.

  4. No space is allowed in the begin, mid, or end of the Access ID,

Here are some examples:

  1. Resource01 is same as resource01 because the Resource ID is case insensitive.

  2. 01resource is a valid Resource ID.

Enter a Resource ID in the field Resource ID on New Resource form. This is a required field.

After you clicked on Save button, if iHome find duplication, the error message will be given in red color.
