solution_idAll Gaia data processed by the Data Processing and Analysis Consortium comes tagged with a solution identifier. This is a numeric field attached to each table row that can be used to unequivocally identify the version of all the subsystems that where used in the generation of the data as well as the input data used. It is mainly for internal DPAC use but is included in the published data releases to enable end users to examine the provenance of processed data products. To decode a given solution ID visitBIGINT
source_idA unique single numerical identifier o f the source obtained from GaiaSource (for a detailed description see GaiaSource.sourceId)BIGINT
