Plan Transition Does Not Cancel Discount When Deal Does Not Contain Any Product And Has Only Discount (Doc ID 1272069.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 14, 2017

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version: and later   [Release: 7.3.0 and later ]
HP-UX Itanium


If a plan has a deal which has only a discount then even though a plan transition is made, the discount is still active.

Replication Steps

Created a Plan with options with the following settings

Plan --> xxxxx_1

It has 2 Deals

Deal 1 : It has only one discount.
Deal 2 : It has a product and a discount of its own.

Following are the observations made during account creation in customer center with different setups in pricing center.

Scenario 1: When Deal 1 is optional and Deal 2 is mandatory
Result: The system would cancel both the deals and new deal is active.

Scenario 2: When Deal 1 is mandatory and Deal 2 is optional
Result: The system would hang and wouldn't allow to make transition.

Scenario 3: When Deal 1 is mandatory and Deal 2 is mandatory
Result: Deal 2 is canceled. New plan gets activated(as per the functionality), but Deal 1 which has only one discount is still active.

Again created a new plan with options to test another scenario for work around.

Plan --> xxxxx_2

It has only one deal which has one discount and a dummy product.

Found that the discount was getting canceled during plan transition when the deal contained a dummy product along with the discount.
