Update documentation

The Non-RT RIC Control Panel is a graphical user interface that enables the user to view and manage the A1 policies in the RAN and also view producers and jobs for the Enrichement Information coordinator service.

  • To create docker image for the control panel:

    cd nonrtric-controlpanel/webapp-frontend
    docker build -t o-ran-sc/nonrtric-controlpanel .
    
  • Nonrtric gateway is also needed because all the request from the gui are passed through this API gateway.

    cd nonrtric-controlpanel/nonrtric-gateway
    docker build -t o-ran-sc/nonrtric-gateway .
    

Note

It is important to note that all the route configurations are provided in application.yaml, so in case domain name and port for Policy Management Service & Enrichment Information Coordinator Service are not the default ones, application.yaml file must be modified.

Docker images for Policy Management and Enrichment Information Coordinator are needed as well in order to view information and data on the interface. These images can be found in the nexus repository or can be built manually as well.

  • nexus3.o-ran-sc.org:10004/o-ran-sc/nonrtric-enrichment-coordinator-service

  • nexus3.o-ran-sc.org:10004/o-ran-sc/nonrtric-policy-agent

Wiki page contain detail information about how to build this images and add some sample data.

  • Using docker compose:

    Another alternative is to use docker compose. In the nonrtric project under the folder docker-compose, instructions can be found in the README file.

    It will start all necessary services and provided sample data that can be viewed in the interface using docker compose command:

    docker-compose -f docker-compose.yaml
                   -f control-panel/docker-compose.yaml
                   -f nonrtric-gateway/docker-compose.yaml
                   -f policy-service/docker-compose.yaml
                   -f ecs/docker-compose.yaml
                   -f a1-sim/docker-compose.yaml up
