Ressource identifier is structured like a URL.

It is templatized as : loader://path

It is an internal identifier which is converted into a proper URL pointing to the ressource by the loader itself (eg: postgis loader).

nb2 : To delete a metadata, you will be asked to delete all the objects dependant on it. (Layers in maps etc..)
