    Hi,
     
    TMF717 - Customer360 Management API version5 is released recently. Can any one please help me to understand the role of discriminator in Characteristic, ContactMedium, partyOrPartyRole, Party, PartyRole schema objects.
    Thanks

    Thanks Maria for your contribution. I'll add that from a technical (Swagger/OAS) perspective, the discriminator gives a "hint" at runtime as to the actual concrete data type of the payload. Taking Characteristic as an example, you will notice that the base class does not have a value property. When I create a payload, let's say by GET on Product (inventory), for a broadband product, the bandwidth is a StringCharacteristic with value = 200Mbps. So this will look like:

    { "value": "200Mbps", "name": "bandwidth", "@type": "StringCharacteristic"}

    The @type  is used to elect the schema for StringCharacteristic.

    Hope it is clear
