    Hi Everyone,

    I had a query on conformance. If we are working on an API, to get conformance do we need to implement all operations and all resources?

    Example, in catalog, we are implementing offering and specifications but not all as that is our requirement. So does it mean we are not compliant? Similarly some operations are not required, so do we still need to implement in order to be compliant?

    Regards,
    Suman

    Hi Suman

    The TMF web page gives a summary of the compliance/conformance process.
    https://www.tmforum.org/conformance-certification/open-api-conformance/

    Currently, to the best of my understanding, conformance is binary. That is for a given API you will either be conformant (you passed the conformance test with 100% core) or you will be non-conformant. There is no partial conformance.

    I have in the past suggested that more flexibility be built in, especially for large APIs such as Product Catalog, but so far this is the situation.

    @George Glass and @Jon Coleman can give further guidance regarding compliance.​​

    Hope it helps
