5.2.11. ONAP Heat Post Orchestration & VNF ConfigurationΒΆ

Heat templates should contain a minimum amount of post-orchestration configuration data. For instance, do not embed complex user-data scripts in the template with large numbers of configuration parameters to the Heat template.

  • VNFs may provide configuration APIs for use after VNF creation. Such APIs will be invoked via application and/or SDN controllers.

Note: It is important to follow this convention to the extent possible even in the short-term as of the long-term direction.
