    Hi
    I am looking for advice on TMF 620 export and import Jobs functions.

    Is there any example of resource?
    What does import/export job entity represent?

    Hi Soumit
    The published user guide (spec) for TMF 620 (Product Catalog Management) shows example resources for the import and export tasks.
    The job entity represents just that, an import or export job. It does not represent the actual data being imported or exported.
    I think that there is a general understanding that the whole area of catalog import and export (for all the catalogs) is insufficiently specified. We have an open change request (initiated by myself) within the Open API team to provide more rigorous semantics for import and export.
    Hope it helps

    The CR is this JIRA issue. You will be able to see it if you are a member of the Open API project.
    In case you are not, it basically says this:

    ===start===
    The catalog APIs (Product, Service, Resource, Entity) include the possibility of import and export. But the behavior (file format, meaning of the resource attributes, id matching, etc.) is not specified and so the import and export can be used only with private agreement between the source and target.
    Suggest to design and document the required behavior.
    ===end===

    Hope it helps
