Resolve a Coherent Identifier and View the Values

The web form below will enable you to resolve individual CIDs and view their associated values. It uses a proxy server, which understands both the Handle protocol and HTTP protocol.

If you type a CID into the text box, and that CID has a URL associated with it as one of its values, the proxy server will instruct your browser to display the location of that URL.  If you select "Don't Redirect to URLs", the proxy will display the CID record.

The CID proxy server uses caching to speed CID resolution. If you check "Authoritative Query", the proxy will bypass the cache, go directly to the responsible CID server, and then refresh the cache with the data for that CID.

Simply appending a CID to the URL and giving the string to a browser as a location will also resolve that CID. The proxy also supports a REST API, returning CID records in JSON format. Further documentation is available here.
