    Hi

    We are currently exploring the use of TMF 688 event API to notify the consumer of the APIs as regards significant events associated with the resource (e.g. ResourceCreate, ResourceDelete, ResourceStateChange etc)

    An initial observation is that the 'Event' resource model in TMF 688 is not aligned to the 'Event' model in the other TMF APIs such as TMF 622 (ProductOrder) and TMF 641 (Service Order).

    The 'Event' resource model in TMF688 does not have the 'fieldpath' attribute for example.
    Which of the two resource models would be an accurate representation of the base type 'Event'

    I was also interested in understanding
    - the 'analyticcharacteristic' attribute (an array of name/value characteristics) defined within the 'Event' resource model. What is the intended use of this attribute.
    - How can the 'Event' resource model in 688 be used to notify the consumer of the API or any other interested subscriber changes to resources. e.g.
        - Changes to the value of one or more attribute within a resource
        - Addition of one or more new attribute or one or more sub-resource within the resource
        - Removal of one or more new attribute or one or more sub-resource with the resource
    - the intended use of the attribute correlationID, domain

    Thanks in advance for any guidance you can provide.

    Hi,

    We are also looking to use the TMF688 event model for an implementation that also includes TMF641 service ordering/TMF622 Product Ordering.

    Our initial interpretation of the 688 model was that it was used for internal events to an application implementation and the TMF641/TMF622 provided external updates to clients/subscribers.

    However on looking at this again is the intention that a 641/622 event lives inside a 688 event? and if that is the case does the full 641 model live inside the 688 event property?

    many thanks

    Dave
