    Hello Team,

    Have  query regarding the TMF 685 resource pool and TMF 639 resource inventory. Pls let know if the below api's can be used for given usecases

    ## TMF 685 - Resource Pool

    * for any MDN availability to be checked upon​ from the pool where the MDN is the resource
    * once MDN is available, MDN would be reserved
    * for any IP availability to be checked upon from the pool where the IP address is the resource
    * once IP is available, IP would be reserved
    * post deactivation, MDN and IP are moved to available Pool

    ## TMF 639 - Resource inventory ​

    * after the MDN is reserved in the pool, using TMF 685 api call, this MDN resource is persisted in the inventory, using POST api
    * after the IP is reserved in the pool, using TMF 685 api call, this IP resource is persisted in the inventory, using POST api
    * for pairing the MDN and ICCID, ICCID is PATCHed ( PATCH API ) to MDN and becomes part  of the feature set
    * uses to query the ICCID information for given value using GET api
    * uses to query the IP information for given value using GET API
    * deletes the resource MDN or IP address from the inventory
    * post deactivation, MDN and IP resources are deleted from the inventory ( is this going to be a hard delete from the datasource  ? )

    This looks correct to me in general. Note some specifics:
    • It is an implementation decision whether a delete is logical (marked as deleted) or physical (removed from database). Up to you. True for all Open API entities, not just logical resources
    • You might need an aging policy before removing a resource from the inventory, so that customer can return and get her resources as they were (e.g. retain for 90 days).
    • The whole process might be orchestrated in a fulfilment flow by a Service Order system. Take a look at some of the published ODA use cases in IG1228
