I believe you're referring to this value:


The purpose of the `id` field is to uniquely identify the status of a
specific VC. The URL can really be any identifier that is unique to the
specific status of the specific credential.

The example uses the pattern of using the base URL for revocation list
bitstring and then a fragment identifier for the position of the status bit
in the bitstring.

Base URL for revocation list bitstring is:


Fragment identifier for the position of the status bit in the bitstring is:


Keep in mind that it's strongly suggested that folks move on to Status List
2021, as it is a more general mechanism (that could cover revocation as well
as suspension or a variety of other statuses):
