Resource Validation Framework: Ensuring State and Lifecycle Consistency

Mahidhar Mullapudi [11]


Abstract: In the intricate landscape of commerce, maintaining accurate and synchronized information about resources which are granular units in commerce like meters, Skus etc., is a multifaceted challenge. This paper introduces a robust solution - the Resource Validation Framework. At its core, this framework integrates critical components, leveraging a Commerce application that publishes configured resource data [1]. This data, vital for external partner systems, undergoes a meticulous journey?initially stored in a normalized format that business planners can configure and then transformed into an intermediate model with all possible combinations and permutations and converted into resources that are granular to be able to transact which are published and stored in Cosmos DB and subsequently archived in a Git repository through a seamless pull request mechanism. The resulting Cosmos DB and Git repository serve as authoritative sources for resource state and lifecycle [2] [3] [4] [5]. The essence of the validation framework lies in guaranteeing the validity of this data, focusing particularly on the state of each resource - whether it's in a test, preview, GA, public, or decommissioned phase. The lifecycle of resources, encapsulating the start and end dates of those state changes, becomes paramount for operational transparency. To achieve this, a systematic approach is implemented, requiring service teams responsible for products and meters to validate the latest resource information against their local datasets. Subsequently, these teams attest to the accuracy of the data, signaling that the resources under their ownership are in a valid state [6]. For streamlined management, the framework introduces a state - tracking mechanism. Resources with discrepancies are designated as 'pending, ' accompanied by a link to the respective incident for tracking. Meanwhile, unattested resources are systematically tracked, fostering a structured validation process. This monthly validation cycle aligns seamlessly with the regular billing and auditing processes of the company, establishing a proactive and integrated approach to resource management.
