IG1228 How to use ODA – Using Open APIs to realize Use Cases v12.0.0

The objective of this document is to illustrate through simple use cases:

  • Dynamic view of ODA Functional Architecture (to be progressively extended in next versions to the global Order to Cash process)
  • Usage of TMF Open APIs (leveraging TMF Open APIs v4)
  • A draft list of ODA macro-components, represented as vertical lines in the sequence diagrams
  • Two possible ways of distributing processes and macro-components and TMF API orchestration
    • A: Using the concept of BFF, in charge of process orchestration and TM Forum API orchestration
    • B: Using TMF 701 Process Flow API to decouple front-ends and process layers.
  • This document is shared with other TMF working groups, and it will continuously evolve benefiting from their feedback:
    • Open APIs workgroup
    • ODA Reference Implementation workgroup

If enhancements to the TM Forum Open APIs v4 are needed for performing a use-case those are listed at the end of each use-case section and will be discussed with the TM Forum Open API working group.
