    Hi All,

    I have an use case in which, we need to retrieve the Service Inclusions like IDD, Data & Roaming details associated with customer ID / phone number.  We should be able to fetch the current available limits, max limits and expiry date associated with each inclusions. 

    Could you please help me to get the insights on the TMF API that needs to be used for this use case.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Divakar Soundararajan

    Hi Divakar

    It depends how these are modeled and at what level.

    If they have commercial implications, I would expect them to have been defined in the product catalog as offerings with prices (TMF620), and then instantiated in the product inventory (TMF637). They would then be translated at provisioning time into the impact services; defined in service catalog (TMF633) and instantiated in service inventory (TMF638), If the implications are purely technical and created at provisioning time, they would be modeled only in the service layer.

    If and when in the future TMF comes up with a Domain-Context-Specific model for 5G mobile, we could expect these service aspects to be modeled as concrete properties of the 5G mobile product and service model.

    Hope it helps

    Jonathan is correct about there being multiple APIs and depends on whether you are in he Product Service and Resource hierarchy We do have a worked example as part of our use case library 

    TMFS008 Use Case: Service and Resource Order Management for Postpaid Mobile Subscribers v3.1.0 – TM Forum

    I think this is a member only document.

    I include a sketch of what is covered in in this 33page document

    Fig4.1.2.1Shows the product Catalog modelling

    Fig4.1.2.1  Shows the service and resources catalog modelling

    Which guide the API extensions

    described in Figure Order structure for base scenario

    Sequence diagram in section 4 and 5  show how he following API interact to support mobile service order and including 

    TMF688 Event Management

    TMF622 Product Order Management

    TMF620Product Catalog Management

    TMF652 Resource order Management

    TMF637 Product Inventory Management 

    TMF634 Resource order Management

    TMF685 Resource pool Management

    TMF639  Resource Inventory Management

    TMF700 Shipping order management

    The information you mention is references from the  Mobile line Service  profile but is held in  Logical resource: PCRF/PCF Voice and data profiles.
