Key Enhancements in BRM 7.4 Patch Set 8
- Purging closed /active_session objects from memory
- Simplified plan transitions
- API changes
Purging closed /active_session objects from memory
The pin_clean_asos utility now deletes only closed /active_session objects from the
TIMOS memory or the BRM database. To implement this change, the -state parameter was removed from the pin_clean_asos utility.
Simplified plan transitions
This patch enables the PCM_OP_SUBSCRIPTION_TRANSITION_PLAN opcode
to support plan transitions to any plan without requiring plan transition rules to
be defined using Pricing Center. It is now possible in BRM to enable plan transitions without defining
transition rules by using the PCM_OP_SUBSCRIPTION_POL_PRE_TRANSITION_PLAN policy opcode.
