  • 1.  External id in TMF666 AccountManagement API

    Hi,
    I am working on aligning BillingAccount of our product to TMF666 AccountManagement API. There are external ids & types against Billing Account stored in our system which provides reference to corresponding entities in external systems. I tried to map them to fields of TMF666 but could not find.

    1) Should I included these fields as extension of BillingAccount?
    2) Can I map them either to RelatedParty or accountRelationship?

    Please advice

    Looks like a good candidate for an enhancement to the standard. But depending on what the nature is of the external entities, relatedparty might be a better fit.

    Thanks Jonathan for your response. The external entities are billing accounts in external systems, so will RelatedParty fit here? (The external entity is not a person)

    Some times we use structure as follow:
    externalReference { [
        {
             externalSystemId = <name of the external system>
             externalId = <corresponding system Id>
         },
         {
          .....
          }
    ] }

    In some cases you may have several systems where the same information is stored with different Ids.
    Hope that helps.
