Developer Guide

This document provides a quickstart for developers of the Non-RT RIC Control Panel.

The Non-RT RIC Control Panel is an interface that allows human users to create, edit and delete policy instances, for each existing policy type. The policy types and their definitions are retrieved from each Near-RT RIC.

Additionally, producers and jobs for the Enrichment Information coordinator service can be viewed and managed.

See the README.md file in the nonrtric-controlpanel repo for information about how to use it.

Start the Control Panel for development

To run the Control Panel locally for development with simulated services, follow these steps:

  • Fetch the latest code from gerrit

  • Start the frontend:

    cd webapp-frontend

    • To start the frontend with Mock data:

      npm run start:mock

    • To start the UI:

      • You need to start the ControlPanel API Gateway, Policy Management Service & EI Service for the UI to list policy & EI information

      ./ng serve –proxy-config proxy.conf.json

      OR

      npm start

    • Now you can open URL: localhost:4200 in a browser to access the Control Panel.

From the main page, click on the “Policy Control” card. From here, it is possible to create or list instances for each existing policy type.

When the instances are listed, it is possible to edit or delete each instance from the expanded view.
