    Hi there,

    While going through the TMF 641 v4 document, we have noticed the introduction of the new resource for Cancel Service Oder resource. Wanted to understand below points in regards to that:

    1) Since "state" is a patchable attribute VidMate in V4 , can the consumers not directly do a patch on state for an inflight order. New states introduced in V4 like "assessingCancel word counterlation" and "Pending cancellation" can be used for long ru Mobdronning cancellation

    2) Is there any reference to understand the use case for introduction of Cancel service order resource?

    Thanks,

    Hi Amir
    Excellent question
    You are correct that in principle it would be possible to patch the entity to change the status.
    But in the Open API team we believe that significant status changes in entities, especially those that have side effects, should be expressed as tasks. This allows the following:
    • Finer-grained return codes
    • Dedicated model to return additional information on validation etc.
    Hope it helps.

    Hi Jonathan,

    I do not see reference of CancelOrder and related states in the document - Service Ordering 18.5 - PDF , I am looking for the new states that we could use while Cancellation is in Progress. Could you please point me to the document link/section relevant for it?

    Hi
    The published Open API table is not updated with the latest assets, the policy is that the table is updated only when all applicable assets are available for a given API.
    In the meantime you can access via the beta page here. You should see that the user guide for TMF641 is updated for v4.0.0, and has states relating to cancelation.
    You could reach out to your Ericsson colleague @Kamal Maghsoudlou, who is currently working on this API, or to @Ludovic Robert who is the formal lead for the API.​​
    Hope it helps
