It can also be set to `mysite:8080/card/eid/nnn' where nnn is the card number shown on the card when being modified.  That works as well.  :card: in the text does not seem to be needed.

:card: role isn't needed to build link, of course.

:card:`wikiid` should work as I described it. If it doesn't, that's a bug.
