The goal of this effort is to define a common set of resources, formats and RESTful services for the use in Asset Management tools and use by ALM and PLM tools.

Refer to the definitions page for descriptions on asset management related terms used here.


The specifications will be developed iteratively by first prioritizing scenarios and focusing on a minimal set of key scenarios. Once these scenarios have been satisfied by specification and proof of implementation, more scenarios will be considered.

Note: iterative specification validation will be occurring as the drafts evolve before finalization. The goal is to not develop the specification in abstract; but to do it in parallel with implementations. We will identify the integration opportunities to validate the spec in order for it to be finalized.

Complete Scenario: this means we have documented on the wiki and agreed to the scenarios for which the REST API will be specified/implemented
Start Draft Specs: this means we have sufficient context from the scenarios to begin describing the REST API specs; as the specs mature, so implementing the RETS API based on the specs can begin as well
Start Convergence: this means the spec is ‘near final’ and final polishing activities begin
