LSO API Onboarding & Interop Test Service

Achieving production-ready LSO API interoperability faster and more efficiently.

Accelerate Your Implementation of LSO Business APIs

The MEF LSO API Onboarding & Interoperability Test (OIT) Service offers an efficient, predictable, and scalable solution that providers can use to test compliance of their implementations of LSO Sonata and LSO Cantata business APIs and perform pre-interop testing with partners at any time.

The solution consists of  LSO Sonata and LSO Cantata buyer and seller software-based emulators, hosted on a dedicated public cloud server for a subscriber.

The buyer and seller emulators can be used to:

  • Gain familiarity with LSO business APIs by running default configurations to test requests, responses, and product payloads.
  • Perform self-assessment by testing against MEF’s reference implementation oF LSO business APIs.
  • Prepare an emulator configuration to match specific scenarios and configurations to share with partners.
  • Load partner-specific configurations shared by partners for pre-interop testing.

The MEF OIT Service is made available by Amartus, a MEF-Authorized Test and Certification Partner. Learn more about the service and the benefits it offers service providers to accelerate LSO Sonata adoption from Amartus’ Product Marketing Manager, Dominik Pacewicz:
