OCP Manageability Profiles[edit]

Products seeking OCP-Accepted and OCP-Inspired Certification Marks must satisfy the Supplier Checklist.

The checklist specifies conformance to OCP profiles applicable to that platform.

Conformance is determined by executing the Redfish Interop Validator with the appropriate profile and including the output file in the product contribution. The Redfish Conformance Test Suite includes the Redfish Interop Validator.

Usage Guides and the Manageability Profiles[edit]

A Manageability Profiles is associated with an Usage Guide. The process for updating profiles in described in this presentation.

When the IC approves the Usage Guide, it approves the corresponding Manageability Profile. The Usage Guide is posted on the Contribution database, and the Manageability Profile is posted to the top folder of the OCP Interop Profile repository. In folders below the top level are drafts and should be considered work-in-progress.

A Manageability Profile can be read by the Redfish Interop Validator, which will test an implementation for conformance to the profile. The semantics of the Manageability profile file are specified in the Redfish Interoperability Profile Specification.
