  • 1.  Sending data to another system

    Posted 19 days ago
    Hi.

    I'm new to open API (TMForum), can you help me please?

    I need to send data (events) to another system, for example, order data, contract data, billing data.

    Are there any API for this communication where I can use only one API but I can change the fields/object related the event I sending?

    TMF681-Communication API can be used for this? Any other suggestion?

    Thanks.
    Everton

    Hi Everton

    There are a number of ways to achieve this, it really does depend a lot on your use cases:
    • Invoke a dedicated synchronous API in the target system as part of your flow in the source system - this is simple, but it does create a strong dependency between the two systems, and is very much point-to-point
    • Use the pub-sub pattern - via the TMF Open API hub pattern
    • Raise an event on an event bus that contains the data - the target system (may be multiple systems) listen to the event and extract relevant data; use Kafka, Rabbit, or other queueing systems (and the TMF Event Management API which wraps these)
    • For large data volumes consider using files or event streaming
    Hope it helps
