    127127'''Note''': AM API v3 added requirements on [wiki:GeniApiIdentifiers URNs] and [wiki:GeniApiCertificates certificates], as well as credentials. A credential is only `geni_sfa` version `3` if all contained certificates and URNs are AM API v3 compliant. Experimenters with existing certificates that are not AM API v3 compliant will only get `geni_sfa` version `2` credentials, unless they first get a new user certificate. As a result, most aggregates should accept both `geni_sfa` version `3` and version `2` credentials.
