    Hi ,

    I have downloaded theTMF633B_Service_Catalog_API_Conformance_Profile_v4.0.0 from the Open API beta table but could not find the mandatory attributes for catalog, category or candidate . It only has mandatory attributes for specification
    The older document(TMF633B_Service_Catalog_Management_API_Conformance_Profile_R18.5.0) has it for all the resources

    Please let me know if I am missing something.

    Hi Rati

    When creating conformance profiles, we are currently considering first which entities must be supported in the API. So, for service catalog, the designer presumably concluded that Service Specification is a must (otherwise there's nothing). But Catalog itself, Category, and Candidate are not essentials for a service catalog.
    Similarly for product catalog, product offering, specification, and price must be supported, but the other entities do not make or break a product catalog.

    The conformance profile considers only the mandatory entities, within these entities which attributes and relations are optional.

    True, this is a changed approach from earlier releases, might be worth a discussion with the Open API leads.

    Hope it helps
