The following guides are provided to describe tasks that a user of ONAP may need to perform when instantiating a service.

Instantiation includes the following topics:

e2eServiceInstance method is a hard-coded approach with dedicated/specific service BPMN workflow. That means it is linked to ONAP source code and lifecycle.

A La Carte method requires the Operations actor to build and send a lot of operations. To build those requests, Operator actor needs to define/collect by himself all VNF parameters/values.

Macro method required the Operations actor to build and send only one request and, thanks to CDS Blueprint templates, ONAP will collect and assign all required parameters/values by itself.
