Specialist Task Force 586:
OpenAPI Specifications for NFV

What we do

The STF 586 develops, enhances and maintains the OpenAPI representations of existing and new NFV-MANO API specifications. In particular, multiple versions of NFV Release 2 and Release 3 API specifications are targeted:

•    SOL002, SOL003 and SOL005 v2.7.1, v3.4.1, v3.5.1
•    SOL009, SOL011 and SOL012 v3.4.1, v3.5.1


For more details, see our Terms of Reference

Why we do it

The ETSI NFV specifications are referenced and used by operators, vendors and open source communities involved in NFV deployments. However, the availability of representations of the ETSI NFV API specifications in the OpenAPI specification language is essential to faster integration of these APIs in industry products. Moreover, this form of machine-processable specifications is essential to automate the development of API conformance test suites.

How we do it

The STF 586 will identify the main OpenAPI relevant differences among subsequent SOL specification versions and will translate them into updates to the related OpenAPI representations. Continuous maintenance and bug fixing cycles will also be implemented to consolidate the produced OpenAPI representations.
The work of the STF 586 will rely and leverage on the results and outcomes of the STF 563 “OpenAPI Specifications for NFV”, which partially run in parallel. A close collaboration and coordination with the STF 563 will be therefore provided by the STF Leader.

Deliverables

The OpenAPI specifications for NFV produced by the STF 586 will be contributed to RMI/NFV-SOL008ed2020 work item of ISG NFV.

Time plan

The STF 586 plans to deliver:

•    OpenAPI representations for SOL002, SOL003, SOL005 specifications v2.7.1 by the end of March 2020
•    OpenAPI representations for SOL002, SOL003, SOL005 specifications v3.4.1 by the end of May 2020
•    OpenAPI representations for SOL002, SOL003, SOL005 specifications v3.5.1 by the end of July 2020
•    OpenAPI representations for SOL009, SOL011, SOL012 specifications v3.4.1 by the end of October 2020
•    OpenAPI representations for SOL009, SOL011, SOL012 specifications v3.5.1 by the end of December 2020
