Design Time Tools Guide
Below are the requirements to enable automation for a service within ONAP.
For instantiation, the goal is to be able to automatically resolve all the HEAT/Helm variables, called cloud parameters.
For post-instantiation, the goal is to configure the VNF with initial configuration.
Gather the cloud parameters:
Have the HEAT template along with the HEAT environment file (or) Have the Helm chart along with the Values.yaml file
(CDS supports, but whether SO → Multicloud support for Helm/K8S is different story)
Have the configuration template to apply on the VNF.
XML for NETCONF
JSON / XML for RESTCONF
not supported yet - CLI
JSON for Ansible [not supported yet]
Identify which template parameters are static and dynamic
Create and fill-in the a table for all the dynamic values
While doing so, identify the resources using the same process to be resolved; for instance, if two IPs has to be resolved through the same IPAM, the process the resolve the IP is the same.
