Bug Fixes

Known Issues

  • VFC-896 vim-id in AAI is handled as a mandatory parameter
  • VFC-890 The hard coded SDC user and password in catalog & LCM is not present in SDC
  • VFC-891 The AAI credentials is hard coded in LCM
  • SDC-1897 - Parser exported CSAR with error OPEN (Will be fixed at Dublin),VFC could ignore that error. To ignore that error, we need either apply the patch at https://jira.opnfv.org/browse/PARSER-187 locally in nfv-toscaparser which VFC uses or wait for nfv-toscaparser got that fixed.

Security Notes
