Purpose
Questions and Answers
 How and what to check in the cm.pinlog to verify the rerating is done?
 
Why PIN_FLD_REQUEST_INFO.PIN_FLD_FLAGS is not set by Created Time?
 
Why the rerate job is set to rerate the account?
If the OOD is detected on /service/voice, I would expect only /service/voice to be rerated. In the opcode PCM_OP_RERATE_INSERT_RERATE_REQUEST, which creates a request job, a filter by service can be specified according to the docs. It looks like there is no point for customization in there after OOB loader pin_load_rerate_jobs is run?
 
We can have more than one subscription on a single account, for example 2 subs and 2 voice services. If the ood is detected for one voice service, how do we avoid rerating the other voice service?
Notice service type is used in services array service_poid.
 
The general case from OOD is that the XML contains more than one account. The question is what if in the flist there is a correspondence between PIN_FLD_ACCOUNTS and PIN_FLD_SERVICES by position? For example, to rerate 2 accounts, the first account needs to rerate /service/ip but the second account needs to rerate /service/email. Also the start_t for rerating might be different.
