Application Packaging Standard

Last updated 18-Mar-2019

Offer Review

APS packing allows for services to be sold and managed through the many Service Providers that use Odin Automation. But for that to work, the service needs to fulfill a number of business and technical requirements – in other words, the offer presented needs to work with both Odin Automation and the Service Provider channel.



Identifying and correcting any issues before the technical work starts is what this first step is all about. The document described below might seem like a lot of work, but we have found that it actually saves time by identifying potential issues before time is wasted in the technical design or implementation.

Checklists and Documents

To go through this step, please download, review and fill out the service assessment checklist that covers several specific areas listed below.

The following documentation sections will help you understand the checklist items:

Product and Offering

As the name suggests, this section is used to determine if the service is ready from a business standpoint to be packaged and sold through a service provider channel.

Billing to Service Provider

In this section, explain your interaction with service providers from the billing standpoint, including the price model, billing period, general subscription management operations, and resource usage reports.

Upgrade of existing integration

Fill out this section if you already have your application integrated with the platform and now you want to upgrade the integration.

Subscription Management

Provide details about operations with subscriptions.

API Calls

Specify the platform integration points the integrated application will use and support.

Submit Request for Offer Review

Once you have completed the checklist, fill out and send the Offer Review request form to the APS team.
