This page lists all projects that have been approved by TSC to be a part of the ONAP Platform.

Project NameApproved DateProject Tech. LeadDescriptionState
A & AI June 9, 2017Active and Available Inventory (AAI) is the ONAP subsystem that provides real-time views of Resources and Services and their relationships. AAI not only forms a registry of active, available, and assigned assets, it also maintains up-to-date views of the multidimensional relationships among these assets, including their relevance to different components of ONAP. 



Application Authorization FrameworkJune 29, 2017


(replacing Jonathan Gathman)

(replacing Ram Koya )

The goal of the project is to provide consistent authentication, authorization and security to various ONAP components. AAF organizes software authorizations so that applications, tools and services can match the access needed to perform job functions.  AAF is designed to cover Fine-Grained Authorization, meaning that the Authorizations provided are able to use an Application's detailed authorizations, such as whether a user may be on a particular page, or has access to a particular Pub-Sub topic controlled within the App. This is a critical function for Cloud environments, as Services need to be able to be installed and running in a very short time, and should not be encumbered with local configurations of Users, Permissions and Passwords. The sister framework CADI ( Code Access Data Identity ) allows Java Applications to utilize Identity Authentication methods as plugins. Certificate Manager delivers X509 certificates in support of 2 way x509 TLS.Approved V.36

Holmes aims to find the real reason which causes the failure or degradation of services by digging into the ocean of events collected from different levels of the Telecom cloud.



IntegrationJune 8, 2017Integration is responsible for ONAP cross-project system integration,  CI/CD, and all related end-to-end release use cases testing with VNFs necessary for the successful delivery and industry adaption of the ONAP project as a whole.



Logging Enhancements Project June 29, 2017


replacing Prudence Au 


Michael O'Brien)

ONAP consists of many components and containers, and consequently writes to many logfiles. The volume of logger output may be enormous, especially when debugging. Large, disparate logfiles are difficult to monitor and analyze, and tracing requests across many files, file systems and containers is untenable without tooling. 

The problem of decentralized logger output is addressed by analytics pipelines such as Elastic Stack. Elastic Stack consumes logs, indexes their contents in Elasticsearch, and makes them accessible, queryable and navigable via a sophisticated UI, Kibana Discover. This elevates the importance of standardization and machine-readability. Logfiles can remain browseable, but output can be simplified.

Approved V.9
Microservices BusJune 8, 2017Microservices Bus provide key infrastructure functionalities to support Microservice Architecture including service registration/discovery, service gateway, service load balancer.



ModelingJune 9, 2017The unified model-driven approach uses models as sources of data for generating processes/codes and following workflows (not code development as source) – this way, the system can be more flexible and future proof, easy to update and use for cross-platform solutions since the “only” thing needed is Model update and manipulation through Engine.Approved v.66

To achieve 5 9s of availability on 3 9s or lower software and infrastructure in a cost-effective manner, ONAP components need to work in a reliable, active-active manner across multiple sites (platform-maturity resiliency level 3). A fundamental aspect of this is  state management across geo-distributed sites in a reliable, scalable, highly available and efficient manner. This is an important and challenging problem because of three fundamental reasons:

  • Current solutions for state-management of  ONAP components like MariaDB clustering, that work very effectively within a site, may not scale across geo-distributed sites (e.g., Beijing, Amsterdam and Irvine) or allow partitioned operation (thereby compromising availability). This is mainly because WAN latencies are much higher across sites and frequent network partitions can occur.

  • ONAP components often have a diverse range of requirements in terms of state replication. While some components need to synchronously manage state across replicas, others may tolerate asynchronous replication. This diversity needs to be leveraged to provide better performance and higher availability across sites.

  • ONAP components often need to partition state across different replicas, perform consistent operations on them and ensure that on failover, the new owner has access to the latest state. The distributed protocols to achieve such consistent ownership is complex and replete with corners cases, especially in the face of network partitions. Currently, each component is building its own handcrafted solution which is  wasteful and worse, can be erroneous.

In this project, we identify common state management concerns across ONAP components and provide a multi-site state coordination/management service (MUSIC) with a rich suite of recipes that each ONAP component can simply configure and use for their state-management needs.
