    Hi

    Looking for some clarity on TMF641 ServiceOrder/externalReference. In the conformance profile it indicates that externalReference is patchable item. However, wanted to clarify if this patchable by consumer only or can also be updated by service provider. We have a use case where the service provider needs to populate it with 3rd party downstream order identifier for end-to-end tracking purposes. Is this okay?

    Thanks,
    Anu

    Hi Anu,
    I do not see any issue. For me there is no special 'constraint for externalReference preventing you to do this.
    Have you noted that moving forward to the v4.0 this is now a structure allowing to manage several?

    Hope ith helps

    Hi @Ludovic Robert,

    Yes understand that externalReference is an array in v4. We thought it should be okay as well - just wanted to double check with you. Thanks for responding.
