Android Question What does the FileProvider "name" parameter do?

In several fileprovider examples, I see the below code for the manifest:

B4X:
CreateResource(xml, provider_paths,
   <external-path name="name" path="shared" />
)
I understand that the "shared" is the name of the sub-directory that the files are in and this can even be set to "" (null) to specify the root directory.

But what does the "name" parameter do?
