    Hello Community,

    My team and I are exploring the Open API and the corresponding Design Guidelines for a possible implementation. There is one question that popped up on API Compliance Levels, if there are any and where a description of those can be found?

    The question is based on the statement "Filtering is mandatory for first compliance level (L1) and optional otherwise." found in "TMF621B_Trouble_Ticket_API_Conformance_Profile_R18.0.0" on page 9.

    What exactly is meant by "first compliance level (L1)"?

    Any help is appreciated.
    Best Regards,
    Masar

    ​Hi Masar
    I believe it refers to Conformance Certification program.
    You can find more details at this page:

    Hi Masar,

    Just to clarify, we are not applying such levels of API conformance yet as you can see from the current CTK here: https://github.com/tmforum-rand/CTK-TMF621-TroubleTicket-R18-0.
    As long as your API implementation can pass the CTK tests successfully, conformance certification is achieved. The levels of conformance specified in TR250 (TR250 API REST Conformance Guidelines R15.5.1 - TM Forum) are not yet enforced but are planned as part of the API conformance evolution roadmap.

    Hope this helps,

    Alfred
