Last updated on JANUARY 29, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version 7.3.1.0.0 to 7.5.0.0.0 [Release 7.3.0 to 7.5.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

We have three business processes, mapped to BRM functionality like below.

1. Invoice (not a BRM invoice) - we generate a custom /event/custom/invoice event and BRM rates the corresponding, to generate deferral amounts.

2. Credit - we call PCM_OP_AR_EVENT_ADJUSTMENT with the actual invoice event and amount, so that it gets negated.

3. Rebill - this is same as invoice; it's just a term for invocing an already credited invoice.

Here are the order of events that happened.

Date
Business Process
BRM process


18-Jan
Invoice request dated 17-Jan came to BRM.
Rated a custom event which generated some impacts with a custom Resource ID to form Deferral money.

25-Jan
Credit request for the 18-Jan invoice.
Called PCM_OP_AR_EVENT_ADJUSTMENT with the same custom event and the adjusted the same amount as invoice with effective_t as Jan-25.

25-Jan
Re-bill request for same case.
This is same as invoice request, so Rated a custom event which generated some impacts with a custom Resource ID to form Deferral money.

2-Feb
Credit request for the 25-Jan Rebill.
Called PCM_OP_AR_EVENT_ADJUSTMENT with the same custom event and the adjusted the same amount as invoice with effective_t as 2-Feb.

2-Feb
Re-bill request for same case.
This is same as invoice request, so Rated a custom event which generated some impacts with a custom Resource ID to form Deferral money.

When we generated the GL for month of Jan, it generated the 17th invoice, 25th credit, 25th rebill and Feb 2nd credit.

What we can understand from this is the EVENT_ADJ event although the item effective_t is reported as Feb 2nd.
