No Monthly Cycle Fee After Setting Product Cycle_end_t To Never Within The Cycle (Doc ID 1315402.1)

Last updated on JULY 02, 2011

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version: 7.4.0.0.0 and later   [Release: 7.4.0 and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When we create the schedule action to cancel the product, the cycle_end_t is set to schedule_action date. We re-set the cycle_end_t to original value if we delete the schedule action.
But with 7.4 after deleting the schedule action the cycle fee is not getting generated.

Consider this scenario:
Create a deal with the product of /service/ip for fixed $100, G(Grantable) flag on, Start Date: Immediately, End Date: Never.

1. 01/01/2012, create account with above deal/product, balance $100
2. 02/01/2012, run billing, balance - $200
3. Set the cycle_end_t on product to 03/01/2011
