TMF638: Service Update Time/status

    Hi Team

    TMF638 defines the service model which has below attributes
    - startDate
    - serviceDate
    - endDate

    There is no attribute which can show details of updateDate and updateStatus
    I feel the only way the hub/listener can get to know about the service date/timestamp is via notifications eventTime

    If a listener wants to poll instead of listening to the notifications - These is no way as per the current service model attributes to be able to query what services changed in last 24/48hrs or what was the status post update/modify operation

    Should there be a jira for the same? Or is there a field which can be used

    thanks

    Hi Vikas
    Just checking that I understood your requirement correctly. You want the history of the service, or more generally, history of an entity.
    We have something like that at the moment for TroubleTicket, and there has been discussion in the Open API team for defining a generalized history pattern. It might be introduced in a future major version of the design guidelines.
    Hope it helps.

    Hello Jonathan

    thanks for your reply

    what I am looking for a attribute in service to have a timestamp when the service/entity was last updated
    Similar to serviceDate and endDate

    thanks

    Also for this last updated attribute we plan to update the design guidelines to define a consistent name for the attribute in all entities. However the attribute won't be added to every entity, only on an as-needs basis. So it looks like we'll need a dedicated CR to add to inventory entities (such as Product, Service, etc.).
