Necessary and sufficient conditions for when every non-zero ideal in a relative Cuntz–Pimsner ring contains a non-zero graded ideal, when a relative Cuntz–Pimsner ring is simple, and when every ideal in a relative Cuntz–Pimsner ring is graded, are given. A “Cuntz–Krieger uniqueness theorem” for relative Cuntz–Pimsner rings is also given and condition (L) and condition (K) for relative Cuntz–Pimsner rings are introduced. As applications of these results, a uniqueness result for the Toeplitz algebra of a directed graph and characterizations of when crossed products of a ring by a single automorphism and fractional skew monoid rings of a single corner isomorphism are simple, are obtained.
