I am just trying to represent iSCSI target and initiator in EndPoint resource schema. I assume(based on the understanding), that iSCSI target name will be specified in the identidfiers property of EndPoint schema and the same for iSCSI initiator. Is that correct?
I have also noticed that EndPoint has another property called ConnectedEntity which describes the other end of the end point. ConnectedEntity has the property called 'EntityRole' which describes the role of the endpoint. But main EndPoint does not have any role like this. Is it correct?
Correct me if my understanding is wrong.
Do we have any simple mockup to represent end points with respect to iSCSI?

We have not completed iSCSI modeling for Endpoints to date. This has only been done for PCIe (with NVMe endpoints) and SAS fabric usage. (DMTF has a WIP proposal for extending the fabric model to cover NVMe for fabric as well, but again, that also does not include iSCSI use cases.)
ConnectedEntity is used to reflect the element (such as a host) connected to the Endpoint. Both endpoints would have this property; it is up to the implementation as to whether they have access to the information used to populate the information.
