    Hi all,
    i would like to ask what should I put in the inventory field "productRelationship"? According to the documentation, i have to put a reference to another inventory, but my idea was to valorize this object with a list of option attached to the related tariff in in the inventory which refer to the catalog. Is it TMF compliance?
    Thanks in advance for the feedback.

    Hi Filippo
    The target of the ProductRelationship entity should be a Product in the inventory (TMF637). That product could have a product price.
    Perhaps you could give a concrete (real business) example of what you are trying to achieve.

    Hi Jonathan,
    thanks for the feedback.
    I try to summarize below my use case:
    I have a tariff and multiple option associated to it. I have to expose these information in the inventory. The idea is to have in the field "productOrderItem" the father (tariff) than inside the field "productOrderItem.productRelationship" the related children (options). Is it TMF compliant?

    Also, when you say "entity should be a Product in the inventory", with product you mean inventory or item?

    Thanks in advance for the feedback.

    Hi Filippo

    I'm afraid I still haven't understood what you are trying to do.
    A tariff would be modeled in the catalog (TMF620) as a ProductOfferingPrice, attached to a ProductOffering. When a product order (TMF622) is initiated from the offering, the tariff would become a ProductOrderPrice in the order, and finally when the order is completed the tariff will become a ProductPrice in the inventory (TMF637), attached to a Product.
    Relationships in the inventory are between Products.
    Perhaps it would help if you could draw a diagram, and use real business examples from common products (mobile, broadband, TV, etc.) to illustrate your problem.
