An operator identity satisfied by the shift operator in a class of standard weighted Bergman spaces is studied. We show that subject to a pureness condition this operator identity characterizes the associated Bergman shift operator up to unitary equivalence allowing for a general multiplicity. The analysis of the general case makes contact with the class of n-isometries studied by Agler and Stankus.
