IPSA Interface Management (Doc ID 1268094.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 30, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Communications IP Service Activator - Version 7.2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


IPSA 5.2 contains extended interface management functions that allow for creation, configuration and deletion of interfaces and sub-interfaces on supported device types. Such entities, known as “configurable” interfaces and sub-interfaces, have their lifecycle controlled by IPSA and can be used in any IPSA services just like a manually created and/or pre-existing interface or sub-interface.

There are two levels of interface management – creation and decoration.

Interface creation, as the name suggests, gives complete lifecycle control to IPSA. IPSA creates the entity, configures it, uses it in various services, and ultimately, deletes it, based on the user’s needs.

Interface decoration mode sees IPSA tasked with only managing the configuration of an interface and not its creation or deletion. This is the interface-specific configuration that is not part of a service that is applied to that interface.


Interface management functions are available on devices managed by Network Processor cartridges that support the Configuration Policies required to provide the implementation.
