Technical discussion on Integration of Streaming and Fault Management

Andrea Mazzini presents current state of TapiNotification, TapiStreaming and TapiFM models.

Agreed a simplification, only one object, ObjectNotification, augments the new EventNotification, which is replacing the old Notification signal:

  • Confirmed that for TAPI 2.3 the "object creation" model will still be different for Notification and Streaming. 
    • Agreed that backward compatibility is assured by keeping the "deprecated" Notification signal.
    • Agreed to explore a more generic data type than name-value pair (which seems less interoperable) for the new object creation notification - this to allow any dump of contents, possibly aligned to Streaming augmentations (see diagram below).
    • Post meeting note, leaving the UML type as "undefined", the uml2yang translates to Yang:
leaf-list object-content {
  type string;
description "The object content, e.g. all the attributes of a newly created object. The mapping is not specified.";
  • Preliminary agreement that TAPI 2.4 object notification will fully align to Streaming augments:

   A JSON Patch document is a JSON [RFC4627] document that represents an
   array of objects.  Each object represents a single operation to be
   applied to the target JSON document.

   The following is an example JSON Patch document, transferred in an
   HTTP PATCH request:

   PATCH /my/data HTTP/1.1
   Content-Length: 326
   Content-Type: application/json-patch+json
   If-Match: "abc123"

     { "op": "test", "path": "/a/b/c", "value": "foo" },
     { "op": "remove", "path": "/a/b/c" },
     { "op": "add", "path": "/a/b/c", "value": [ "foo", "bar" ] },
     { "op": "replace", "path": "/a/b/c", "value": 42 },
     { "op": "move", "from": "/a/b/c", "path": "/a/b/d" },
     { "op": "copy", "from": "/a/b/d", "path": "/a/b/e" }

7.10.  The "anydata" Statement

   The "anydata" statement defines an interior node in the schema tree.
   It takes one argument, which is an identifier, followed by a block of
   substatements that holds detailed anydata information.

   The "anydata" statement is used to represent an unknown set of nodes
   that can be modeled with YANG, except anyxml, but for which the data
   model is not known at module design time.  It is possible, though not
   required, for the data model for anydata content to become known
   through protocol signaling or other means that are outside the scope
   of this document.

   An example of where anydata can be useful is a list of received
   notifications where the specific notifications are not known at
   design time.
