This document provides information for the development of TM Forum REST APIs Conformance Certification.

Application Programming Interfaces, better known by their acronym, API, are becoming ubiquitous and widely recognized as their potential to transform business both within an enterprise and between organizations. APIs are playing an increasingly important role as organizations look for better ways of engaging with customers, optimizing business outcomes, and expanding their digital ecosystems.

In response to this trend, the TM Forum is introducing Conformance Certification for REST APIs. This is in line with the TM Forum’s commitment to take on and deliver the best value to our membership by leveraging the direction where the current demand for innovation and delivery of new components is, and how the TM Forum intends to meet such expectations.

Examples from the Customer Management API are provided.
