TMF641 - externalRefernce id as mandatory

    Hi there,

    While looking at TMF 641 v4.1.0, the externalReference object has id, href, name and externalReferenceType. The conformance Profile suggests that name is mandatory for externalReference sub-resource.  As per our understanding, this is contrary to how other objects like note, serviceOrderRelationship or any other TMF objects are defined.
    Please confirm if there is any plan to update the conformance profile along with TMF 641 v4.1 release.

    Snippet below from TMF641B_Service_Ordering_API_Conformance_Profile_v4.0.0


    Snippet below is from TMF 641 API specification v4.1.0


    Thanks,

    Hi Rati

    This is a valid point. Probably it cames from the swagger where name attribute is stated as mandatory. I'm not sure also about the href meaning here.
    I loop @Kamal Maghsoudlou ​who leading 4.1 work.

    Hope it helps,

    Ludovic

    Hi @Ludovic Robert , Thanks for your response.

    Discussed this with @Kamal Maghsoudlou and he suggested that it was a bug. Have created a Jira ticket(AP-2376 )  for further analysis ​​

    Thanks,
