When using BRM 7.4 Pricing Center to create a new simple product (purchase fee event or cycle forward event, single rate, single tier), or update an existing simple product (e.g. rate name change to a single product such as /account level subscription with a single rate plan and a single tier charge for cycle forward event), the product information did not synchronize in AIA side (AIA 2.5).

After analyzed the log file, the issues seemed to be in Payload file on BRM side.

Details about the problem:
After comparing the two payloadconfig_MergedWithCRMSync.xml in BRM side and AIA side, it's found that
1) BRM is using "ProductsInfo" tag instead of "ProductInfo" :


<ProductInfo Source="EVENT" Tag="ProductsInfo" PinFld="PIN_FLD_PRODUCTS" DataFrom="PIN_FLD_PRODUCTS">


<ProductInfo Source="EVENT" Tag="ProductInfo" PinFld="PIN_FLD_PRODUCTS" DataFrom="PIN_FLD_PRODUCTS">

2) BRM is using "ProductType" tag instead of "Type":


<Field PinFld="PIN_FLD_TYPE" Tag="ProductType"/>


<Field PinFld="PIN_FLD_TYPE" Tag="Type"/>

3) Missing InstanceId, xmlns, xmlns:xsi and xsi:schemaLocation attributes on ProductInfoChange, superfluous attribute Version on ProductInfoChange:


<ProductInfoChange Source="EVENT" Tag="ProductInfoChange" StartEvent="/event/notification/price/products/modify">
   <Attribute Tag="Version" Value="1.0"/>
   <Field PinFld="PIN_FLD_ACCOUNT_OBJ" Tag="AccountObj"/>
   <SubElement Name="ProductInfo" OnEvent="/event/notification/price/products/modify"/>


<ProductInfoChange Source="EVENT" Tag="ProductInfoChange" StartEvent="/event/notification/price/products/modify">
   <Attribute Tag="InstanceId" Value="Portal"/>
   <Attribute Tag="xmlns" Value="" />
   <Attribute Tag="xmlns:xsi" Value="" />
   <Attribute Tag="xsi:schemaLocation" Value="" />
   <Field PinFld="PIN_FLD_ACCOUNT_OBJ" Tag="AccountObj"/>
   <SubElement Name="ProductInfo" OnEvent="/event/notification/price/products/modify"/>
