5.4. Creating Vendor-Specific VNFM Adaptor MicroservicesΒΆ

VNFs can be managed by vendor-specific VNFMs. To add a vendor-specific VNFM to ONAP, a vendor-specific VNFM adaptor is added to ONAP implementing the interface of the vendor-specific VNFM.

A vendor-specific VNFM adaptor is a microservice with a unique name and an appointed port. When started up, the vendor-specific VNFM adaptor microservice is automatically registered to the Microservices Bus (MSB). The following RESTful example describes the scenario of registering a vendor-specific VNFM adaptor to MSB:

POST /api/microservices/v1/services
{
    "serviceName": "catalog",
    "version": "v1",
    "url": "/api/catalog/v1",
    "protocol": "REST",
    "visualRange": "1",
    "nodes": [
    {
        "ip": "10.74.56.36",
        "port": "8988",
        "ttl": 0
    }
    ]
}
