  • 1.  TMF701: name attribute for ProcessFlow and TaskFlow

    Dear experts,

    I see in the TMF701 user guide that ProcessFlowSpecification and TaskFlowSpecification each has a "name" attribute, but ProcessFlow and TaskFlow do not. Is that on purpose? if so, what is the reason?

    Thank you and best regards,
    Opher

    Hi Opher
    I can only guess that the name is assumed to be the name from the corresponding specification entity.
    Feel free to extend the model to add name in the instance entities.
    Hope it helps

    Hi Jonathan,

    Thank you for picking this up. To be honest, I was hoping for a more authoritative answer rather than a guess. Maybe from someone that participated in writing this document and would be able to shed some light.

    To me there seems to be an inconsistency between TMF APIs on this point, compared for example to the Service model (TMF638) and Resource model (TMF639).

    Best regards,
