|Description||string||CIM_LogicalIdentity is an abstract and generic association, indicating that two ManagedElements represent different aspects of the same underlying entity. This relationship conveys what could be defined with multiple inheritance. In most scenarios, the Identity relationship is determined by the equivalence of Keys or some other identifying properties of the related Elements.
This relationship is reasonable in several scenarios. For example, it could be used to represent that a LogicalDevice is both a 'bus' entity and a 'functional' entity. A Device could be both a USB (bus) and a Keyboard (functional) entity.
