5.3. VNFM Driver Development Steps

Refer to the ONAP documentation for VNF Provider instructions on integrating vendor-specific VNFM adaptors with VF-C. The VNF driver development steps are highlighted below.

1. Use the VNF SDK tools to design the VNF with TOSCA models to output the VNF TOSCA package. Using the VNF SDK tools, the VNF package can be validated and tested.

2. The VNF Provider supplies a vendor-specific VNFM driver in ONAP, which is a microservice providing a translation interface from VF-C to the vendor-specific VNFM. The interface definitions of vendor-specific VNFM adaptors are supplied by the VNF Providers themselves.
