“Let’s not dismiss or attack individual ideas as being inadequate before we have had a chance to assess their positive effect as part of a whole solution.”
The template below provides the framework for collecting detail about the interfaces on your network elements and OSS applications. These details will allow you to enhance your OctopOSS‘s roadmap and to specify the mediation between those interfaces.

As you’ll notice, blank samples for interfaces 30 to 32 are shown in the attachment. If you’d like a more complete template or assistance in customising your own template, please contact us here.
Note: When evaluating an interface, also be aware of what information is exposed by the API. It is common for less than 100% of data fields to be exposed, so don’t forget to check that the ones you need are accessible.
You may find the information collected in the template above will also help you to fill out the details in the OSS Roadmap Tool.
If you find this template helpful, I’d love to hear about your story, your project and any other enhancements that you’ve made to the template.
