    Hi,
    We need to deliver some profiles(digital identify)..u can treat it like the software license key..

    But this can't be send via., email etc., Also in some scenario, external systems will take this information and do further processing using this data.

    The purchasing channel/system & the fulfillment systems are different. Hence we wanted to have a deferred mode of delivery these profiles to buyer.

    Hi Vanitha,

    In Open API we have API "TMF684_Shipment_Tracking_API_REST_Specification_R18.0.1"  for Shipment Tracking captures information about the current status of the shipment, the past checkpoints and the estimated arrival date. Via this API, tracking information can be retrieved by providing an order Id or the shipping company's tracking id.

    Solution approach may fit your requirement:
    Step 1: Order Management System shall send the Shipment /Goods delivery details to Warehouse. --> API to Inform Warehouse  to create Tracking Id for the delivery.
    Step 2: Warehouse will pick the Goods as per request , Create Tracking ID for requested delivery.
    Step 3: Warehouse shall notify the Goods and Tracking information to Order management System for Tracking. --> API to inform the Order management about Goods details and shipment ID.
    Step 4: Order management  system shall query the shipment status. -> Api to Query the current shipment details.

    Hope this will help !

    Kind Regards,
    Rakesh

    Hi Rakesh,

    Thanks for sharing.

    I'm thinking of implementing this as notification service (Tm Forum has a http callback based notification approach). Will embed our payload based on that.
    We don't want to keep information about the consuming system details. These digital goods/identities are consumed/picked up by external software systems from our fulfillment systems.
