With the recent release of a new WebUI implementation example in ConfD 7.4, we wanted to provide an overview with a walkthrough and more background on its use. The “ConfD WebUI Example using JSON-RPC API” AppNote touches on the JSON-RPC API and provides a few examples of how to use the API from the command line.
Additionally, you will learn more in-depth details about the example’s architecture, selection of frameworks & libraries, and a brief description of and orientation to the example’s codebase.

As a ConfD application developer, you should be aware that when data is read or written from any of the ConfD northbound interfaces and APIs that data must go through the ConfD transaction engine before reaching the CDB datastores and applications via the southbound APIs. The ConfD transaction manager is tightly integrated with all ConfD components. When designing your application integration with ConfD and configuring ConfD, there are a number of crucial questions to consider during application design.
We are presenting a one-hour webinar in which we will focus on ConfD's transaction engine and go through the most common and impactful design decisions when integrating with ConfD’s transaction manager while keeping the bigger picture in mind.

The Tail-f development team has been very busy and are excited to release ConfD 7.5 with several exciting new features. Take a few minutes to learn about the new enhancements, changes, and deprecations in our latest blog post about the release highlights.
As with any new ConfD release, you should also read the CHANGES file to learn more about everything that is included in this new release.
In November 2020, EANTC held their first standalone interoperability test event focused solely on the use of NETCONF and YANG. They have recently published an 18-page report detailing the event's use cases and test results. Planning is now underway for the next NETCONF and YANG focused interop event which will occur in April 2021 with results to be published during MPLS SDN NFV World Congress in Paris in September 2021.

You Need Both Sides of the Equation in Network Management
When doing math, equations include variables on both sides and both sides of the equation have to be equal; i.e., balance out.
A popular choice for implementing human-to-machine management interfaces is a WebUI. When migrating existing or writing new WebUI content for ConfD, the application developer has two choices for integrating: JSON-RPC API or RESTCONF. Both of these APIs are programmable and web-oriented.
When working with ConfD, developers make quite a bit of use of Tail-f YANG extension statements in their YANG data models to provide information about things such as backend instrumentation and auto-rendering guidance. How can you easily extract these from the YANG data models which you will provide to your customers?
In November 2020, the European Advanced Networking Test Center (EANTC) held the "Multi-Vendor NETCONF/YANG-Based SDN Management Interoperability Test 2020" event in Berlin via virtual participation.
