Priority vs. Occurrence on requests

Hi. Could you explain the boundary between these two entity on Request resources? For example, is there any situation where request.priority is set to ASAP but request.occurenceTime has an absolute DateTime?

Priority indicates how ‘urgent’ the request is. Occurrence[x] indicates when the authorization applies to. It’s possible for something to be ‘urgent’ - i.e. very important that it happens, but the scheduled time is still later. I.e. “Once the specified time-period starts, it’s very important that the requested thing happens”. It’s possible to ask for something to happen immediately, but for it to have low importance, or to ask for it to happen later, but to have high importance.
