What is this release trying to address?

The scope of the Beijing Release of AAI will address CII Badging Security Program and Platform Maturity Requirements, as well the approved Release 2 Use Cases

Highest priority will be assigned to support security and platform maturity requirements.  As next highest priority, AAI will support the approved use cases.  Best-effort additional development will continue to support additional features not included in the approved use cases.

Use Cases

AAI will support to the best of its ability the Release 2 Use Cases

Minimum Viable Product

  • A&AI Core: Resources - CRUD REST API endpoints for A&AI inventory resources
  • A&AI Core: Traversal - REST APIs for graph traversals.  Some APIs use the Gremlin Server
  • UI - An ONAP portal application used by operations for visualizing and searching
  • Data Router: Makes decisions about workloads to be dispatched to search and tabular microservces.  Includes logic to recognize and direct requests based on request archetypes.
  • Search - Enable complex searches for sub graphs and functions that need to perform well across deeply nested structures using Elasticsearch.  Used by the UI
  • Champ - Abstraction from underlying graph storage systems that A&AI would interface with.
  • Gizmo - CRUD Rest API endpoint for resources and relationships, delivering atomic interactions with the graph for improved scalability.
  • ESR - External System Registry component
    Stretch goal for Beijing:
  • IM - Image Manager. CRUD of image files/metadata.


List the functionalities that this release is committing to deliver by providing a link to JIRA Epics and Stories. In the JIRA Priority field, specify the priority (either High, Medium, Low). The priority will be used in case de-scoping is required. Don't assign High priority to all functionalities.

List all sub-components part of this release.
Activities related to sub-components must be in sync with the overall release.

Sub-components are repositories and are consolidated in a single centralized place. Edit the Release Components name for your project in the centralized page.


High level architecture diagram

At that stage within the Release, the team is expected to provide more Architecture details describing how the functional modules are interacting.

Indicate where your project fit within the ONAP Architecture diagram.

  • API Incoming Dependencies

List the API this project is expecting from other projects.
Prior to Release Planning review, Team Leads must agreed on the date by which the API will be fully defined. The API Delivery date must not be later than the release API Freeze date.

Prior to the delivery date, it is a good practice to organize an API review with the API consumers.

If this project is coming from an existing proprietary codebase, ensure that all proprietary trademarks, logos, product names, etc. have been removed. All ONAP deliverables must comply with this rule and be agnostic of any proprietary symbols.

  • Free and Open Source Software

FOSS activities are critical to the delivery of the whole ONAP initiative. The information may not be fully available at Release Planning, however to avoid late refactoring, it is critical to accomplish this task as early as possible.
List all third party Free and Open Source Software used within the release and provide License type (BSD, MIT, Apache, GNU GPL,... ).
In the case non Apache License are found inform immediately the TSC and the Release Manager and document your reasoning on why you believe we can use a non Apache version 2 license.

Each project must edit its project table available at Project FOSS.

Charter Compliance

The project team comply with the ONAP Charter.


  1. As I can see there is a plan to use JanusGraph instead of Titan. So is A&AI running on Titan or Janus in the Beijing release? Also as I understand Titan used Cassandra as a base data layer. So is it still the case? I also saw references to ElasticSearch in the installation instructions. Where is it used? Thanks a lot!

    1. Hi Evguenia (Jane) Freider - Most of the microservices are currently configured in their respectve master branches to use Titan on Cassandra.  JanusGraph changes are coming this week, so we are still planning to use it for Beijing.  Arul Nambi or Francis Paquette - can you reply on the Elastic question?
