    hi,

    Got notified today that TMF has published a new API called.... "TMF620E Async Product Catalog  Asynchronous v5.0.0"

    this release is quite surprising.

    1. what's the purpose of this API that wasn't already covered by 620?
    2. Why does letter "E" mean?
      1. what about TMF620A, TMF620B...TMF620D?
    3. why is this API specifically called "async"?
    4. can TMF share a document explaining the differences between 620 and 620E?
      1. I went through some sections and I haven't yet found notable differences except that 620E has less information on sub-diagrams but still has a few more pages

    Hi Matthieu

    The publication is to the beta/preproduction page https://www.tmforum.org/oda/open-apis/table/pre-production

    The asynchronous Open API is a parallel initiative that creates API contracts according to the async API standard (https://www.asyncapi.com/en). Async API basically separates the invocation of operations from the response, so that the consumer sends the input payload as an event/message and waits to receive the response as an event/message.

    There is no change to the payload model, and as far as I am aware the transformation of the published assets to the async API format is completely tool-driven and automatic (for example although I'm the nominal owner of TMF620 I was completely uninvolved in this publication).

    Hope it helps

    Hi "asynchronous Open API" folks, Jonathan,

    I was trying to find the project page for this initiative, in order to learn more about the plan/path, objectives, etc., but I'm not turning up anything (or I'm looking wrong).  Can you point me to the right place and/or people?

    Regards,

    Hi,

    You can find some information about the AsyncAPI initiative in this catalyst:

    https://www.tmforum.org/catalysts/projects/C23.0.562/asyncapi-phase-ii

    This is phase II, but there is also phase I whose documentation I have not been able to find. 

    Regards,

    Just a correction to what I wrote before about the API table, after I wrote the post I discovered that the presentation has been revised, see here for more details.

    https://engage.tmforum.org/discussion/open-api-table-reorganized

    The dedicated page for each API includes the async variation if there is one.
