API allows caller to get details of the document type version that contains also definition of the XML or JSON structures that are expected to be submitted as part of document submission and receipt document submission.
Document type versions are used to allow document type data fields to be evolved over time without introducing a new document type. For example if initially document type version 1.0 could have certain field optional, a certain time later document type version 2.0 can be published where that field is made mandatory.
Note that it is possible that for one document type there are multiple valid document type versions. It is needed to enable transition periods allowing older versions to be submitted while already accepting newer document versions. Of course it is suggested to migrate to the latest document type version as soon as possible.
