    Hi Team,
    We are going to use TMF685 Resource Pool Management API for Reservation of Logical and Physical Resources.
    In TMF685 Resource Pool Management API REST Specification R18.0.1 there is a schema:

    It looks like ReservationID is going to be reflected in TMF622 Product Ordering API
    However in TMF622 there is direct link from ProductRefOrValue to certain ResourceRef and no references to Reservation ID.

    From the Use case perspectives looks reasonable to manage Reservation on the TMF648 Quote Managament API level when the Resource is being reserved - to capture ReservationID and get the Resource from it.

    Or use current approach - direct link from ProductRefOrValue to certain ResourceRef.
    Then it's not clear how to manage Reservation Lifecycle in Product Order and who will complete the Reservation and when.

    Could you please advise or share your thoughts.

    Thank you.
