This centralized page, for all Beijing projects, is aimed at identifying the risks as they are foreseen within the release lifecycle.

A Risk that materialized becomes an Issue.


  • Identified: a risk that has been identified, but has not yet been analyzed / assessed yet 
  • Assessed: an identified risk which currently has no risk response plan 
  • Planned: an identified risk with a risk response plan
  • In-Process: a risk where the risk response is being executed 
  • Closed: a risk that occurred and is transferred to an issue or the risk was solved/avoided
  • Not occurred: a risk that was identified but that did not occur 
  • Rejected: created and kept for tracking purposes but considered not to be used yet

ONAP DM Modeling SDC Requirements

2 new sets of normative types are required from the Modeling team:

  1. Tosca NFV-based types to replace the current types used in the VOLTE use case.
  2. ETSI SOL-based set of types to support the HPA functionality.

Impact on vVOLTE Use Case

SDC impacted by Modeling project

To be able to meet M4 all this items need to be delivered by 3/16/2018 :

  1. The 2 new sets of normative types be onboarded into SDC.
  2. The CSAR need to be updated and validated in SDC.

If not then VoLTE use case will not be re certified by M4.

Late delivery of Nitrogen ODL

We were expecting to be integration newer version of ODL in Sprint 2; however, due to late delivery, this work is falling into the last sprint for Beijing release. Nitrogen brings a lot of changes that will make the component unstable until completed and will impact testing, plus may take longer than 1 sprint to complete. In Amsterdam, it took us a couple of sprint to work through issues and there were a number of fixes that were needed in CCSDK discovered as we attempted integration. I expecting that we will have similar experience.


We are being trying to prioritize the features in APPC and update those that are needed for Beijing as top priority.

Also working closely with CCSDK PTL on any issues found in CCSDK that may block us.

De-scope upgrade to Nitrogen; fall back to released version of Carbon from CCSDK Amsterdam distribution.HighHigh

Risk Still Open

3/27/18 update:

We are still working through upgrade issues; Nitrogen/Karaf 4 don't seem to be very stable and we are running into issues with bundles freezing up during deployment, which is made difficult to troubleshoot since there are no error messages.

Confidence level to complete by 3/29:  Low

Late delivery of AAF-91  dependency

This feature was expected by 2/15; however, as of 3/13, delivery of feature has not been received yet. Demo of feature provided did not deliver the requested scope.



Working closely with AAF team to get gap addressed to enable APPC to deliver AAF integration to secure APIs exposed via ODL apidoc.

Based on current discussion with AAF team, we expect this to be a configuration change on APPC only.  If that turns out not to be the case, delivering APPC-404 by code freeze may not be possible.

 De-scope APPC-404 in Beijing and address in Casablanca.

Medium at this time; will monitor to see how it goes in the next week and determine if risk level needs to change. High

Risk still Open

3/27/18 update: Still waiting on official delivery of AAF-91 in Nexus. We have tested with beta version provided by Dev team, but APPC feature cannot be completed until AAF-91 is published.

Confidence level to complete by 3/29: Medium to Low



Code Merge from ATT Ecomp 1806 to ONAP SO

Risk as identified at M1 and M2 has materialized. ATT code is not merged yet. This may impact code quality (static code checks, security vulnerabilities and Licensing) and code coverage. Code merge may impact other current development. Code Merge is currently planned by March 14.


Working closely for the merge to be on time.

Code merge has been completed on 14th March and around 82K lines of added+ Modified code has been introduced new.

Need to re-asses the functional features commitment.

Security - Support of HTTPS and Certificates Distribution Strategy for the Beijing release is not yet available.  Since all projects need to implement TLS for S3P requirements, a centralized solution is needed so that all projects can have their certificates signed by an ONAP CA and only have to trust the ONAP CA rather than each project distributing self-signed certificates.  Also need a solution for cert subject naming conventions so that systems do not have to disable hostname verification, and have a central DNS solution as well

Any Project team who require a certificate & will support HTTPSFeedback required from the Security SubcommitteeMitigated Action: Re-use openecomp toy CA that was used for a few projects in Amsterdam. Finalize the Certificates/HTTPS strategy by Casablanca M1 (Planning Milestone) since it will potentially require significant development. HighHighAssessed


Large code drops at the M4 code freeze date does not allow time for OOM to integrate these changes into Beijing. Significant changes are expected from SDC, SO, SDNC/R, and DCAE prior to M4. Any others?All teams

Teams planning to release significant changes to either the docker containers or configuration of these containers should contact the OOM team (Roger Maitland).

ONAP integration will likely start with stable components and proceed with components with significant changes as they are on-boarded to OOM.HighHigh
