    I notice in the latest release of the TMF640 API (18.5.0) that all reference to asynchronous requests has been removed. Does this mean there is no support for asynchronous activation requests, an alternative to 640 for asynch is available or this is just an oversight in the latest 640 version? Why does the document still reference Monitors?

    Hi Stuart

    I think we handled this in our offline discussion, but for the benefit of the wider community I will clarify that this is a defect and we need to issue a fix for TMF640 to allow return of HTTP code 202 (Pending) for POST (and PATCH) operations.

    We would be pleased to hear from community members if they think any other APIs need this asynchronous response capability.
    Note that many APIs support asynchronous behavior using TASK resources, where creating (POSTing) the task creates a task resource synchronously and the task starts running. So if this fix is needed it will be only for operations on managed resources (e.g. Service in TMF640 Activation and Configuration).

    Hi Jonathan,

    Sorry for being hijack this thread.
    we also trying to using TMF640 expose as asynchronous request where by in backend doing  orchestration.
    for the aync acknowledge response, is that we can customize the response instead of the "Service" object?

    Hello Chio Chuan

    Did you assessed capability to manage this async with the monitor resource ? then if it is more complex to orchestrate you can also assess use of TMF 641 service ordering. All depends of these customizations that you want to introduce on your service resource.

    Hope it helps

    Hi Ludovic,

    Thanks for reply.
    Yes, we do explore that, but based on my understand that TMF641 is the service ordering which is doing the order decomposition.
    As we just want to expose the API purely for activation and not intend to do the order decomposition as our consumer already doing service order management.

    Thanks.

    Regards,

    Hi Jonathan,

    Any reason why asynchronous DELETE would not be permitted? A resource that needs asynchronous behavior for POST or PATCH might also need this for DELETE operations.

    Best regards,
