This section describes workflows for interacting with the API of the CORD. There are multiple APIs. Some of them are used in a Northbound context, for services sitting on top the CORD, and some are used internally for components to communicate with each other.

  • gRPC. The gRPC API is used internally for synchronizers and for Chameleon to speak with the XOS core. It's also available as a Northbound API.

  • REST. The REST API is implemented by the Chameleon container. In addition to being a popular Northbound API, it's also used by the XOS GUI.

  • TOSCA. TOSCA is implemented by the xos-tosca container and is typically used to configure and provision a POD. The following two references describe how to use TOSCA to configure Profiles and Services, respectively:
