ONAP Automation Testing - Portal/SDC






The ONAP Portal is a platform that provides the ability to integrate different ONAP applications into a centralized Portal Core. The intention is to allow decentralized applications to run within their own infrastructure while providing common management services and connectivity. The Portal core provides capabilities including application onboarding & management, centralized access management, and hosted application widgets. Using the provided SDK, application developers can leverage the built-in capabilities (Services / API / UI controls) along with bundled tools and technologies.

SDC is the ONAP visual modeling and design tool. It creates internal metadata that describes assets used by all ONAP components, both at design time and run time.

The SDC manages the content of a catalog, and logical assemblies of selected catalog items --as needed-- to completely define how and when VNFs  are realized in a target environment.  A complete virtual assembly of specific catalog items, together with selected workflows and instance configuration data,  completely defines how the deployment, activation, and life-cycle management of VNFs are accomplished.  Selected sub-assemblies may also be represented in the catalog and may be combined with other catalog items, including other sub-assemblies.

During the latest release retrospective, the ONAP Integration Team has identified 3 areas of improvements:

  1. Integration tests in target deployments using OOM.
  2. Improve robot healthcheck across projects.
  3. More projects added to CI pipeline and more project-specific testing.

This project will focus to address these improvemets defined by the SDC/Portal Projects Teams.

The prioritization of the activities will be discussed with the mentee based on his/her skillset and expectations.
