    Hi Priyesh
    There is no direct mapping between Open APIs and the eTOM business process framework.
    In the context of the ODA functional architecture, each ODA component definition includes an uber-mapping between multiple Frameworx elements relevant to that component - the Information Framework (SID), eTOM, Framework functions (taken from TAM), and the Open APIs.
    You can see this in the published definitions for Product Catalog and Service Order components.
    Hope it helps

    Hi Priyesh,

    The topic of mapping between different data catalogs (such as eTOM, ODA, APIs, Business Capabilities and others) is something that has been discussed an partially addressed through a number of TMF publications including GB992 and there is also the ongoing collaboration work being performed by several teams.


    The CurateFx tool does support the mapping between Business Processes and APIs, and mappings between ODA-CA and APIs have been available in CurateFx for some time.   We have also seen several Catalyst teams create mappings between items such as Business Capabilities, ODA and eTOM – these example projects are also available in CurateFx.   You may be interested to review some of the mapping examples  the that have been created in an example CurateFx TM Forum Toolkit project.   This CurateFx project contains a variety of examples and How to videos many of which relate to the mapping of elements between different TM Forum elements.  

    There are also a number of Catalyst projects that have used CurateFx to create mappings between items such as Business Capabilities, ODA and eTOM.

    If you need further information or would like to see more examples then please let me know and I would be happy to arrange a time to show you these in CurateFx.

    Regards,

    Kevin
