    We have found 2 API in TM Open API TMF666 and TMF363 which are more related to account management and Billing Account Management.

    We are unable to identify which API can be used to integrate with Billing system. Can someone guide me which API can be used to integrate with Billing system.

    Account Management API - TMF666
    Billing Management API - TMF636

    PLease let us know incase you need more clarity.

    Hi Sameer,

    Are you referring to the update of the Billing Account?
    If, yes, then TMF666 should be used.

    If you are referring to the update of the Customer Account, then TMF629 is the right API.
    But please note that operations done via TMF 629 will have to also trigger TMF666 based on the changes done (if the change impacts the Billing Account  data).

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,
    Jagadish

    Hi Sameer,

    In general with any billing system we use following API for integration.

    For Billing account update :- TMF666

    For Customer account management :- TMF 629

    For Customer Billing management:- TMF 678

    For Customer Itemized Billing usage history management :- TMF 677

    Hi,

    An engaged party is someone who has a relationship with the enterprise.
    It can be an Individual consumer, an enterprise customer or a supplier.
    It is a multi - role feature.

    All - please be aware that there is a dedicated community forum for Open API discussions here:
    https://engage.tmforum.org/communities/community-home/digestviewer?communitykey=d543b8ba-9d3a-4121-85ce-5b68e6c31ce5&tab=digestviewer

    I suggest you join the community and read the posts there, and also post your questions there, it is more likely that Open API experts will be following that community.
