Difference between vProvisionedTokenID and tokenReferenceID

Hi,

 

Under the Section of "Provision Token—Given PAN Data Response", I can see these two attributes in the response:

  • tokenReferenceID: Unique ID associated with a single token. The ID is created upon initial provisioning of a token to a device.
  • vProvisionedTokenID: Unique ID for token

Can you please explain the difference of these two IDs?  I really cannot tell the difference based on the description.

 

I can see that vProvisionedTokenID is used as path variable in the endpoints. In which case I should use tokenReferenceID?

 

Best regard

 

Rocky

Yes, my question is for Visa Token Service on VDP.     Just don't understand why Visa maintain two different unique ids for the same token? The link you gave doesn't explain any difference between vProvisionedTokenID and tokenReferenceID. Thanks!
