New Features

The Amsterdam release is the first release of the Control Loop Automation Management Platform (CLAMP).

If you want to review the defects fixed in the Amsterdam release, refer to Jira link above.
Known Issues
  • CLAMP-68 ResourceVF not always provisioned.

In Closed Loop -> Properties CL: When opening the popup window, the first service in the list does not show Resource-VF even though in SDC there is a resource instance in the service.

Workaround:

If you have multiple service available (if not create a dummy one on SDC), just click on another one and then click back on the first one in the list. The ResourceVF should be provisioned now.

  • CLAMP-69 Deploy action does not always work.
