Symptoms

Problem : Trial Billing does not include the cycle fees purchased to start from the next billing cycle ( that is deferred) but they are included while running actual billing.

Steps to reproduce :
Consider actg_dom = 7

  1. 07 July : create account with any OOB plan , say for /service/ip. Bill cycle is 7 July to 7 Aug.
  2. 23 July : purchase a product ( MCF 30 $ , /service/ip ), with start dates as 7 August
  3. 23 July : run trial billing with the below flist. See that end_t is 8th August :
  4. # 1123 op_bill_make_trial_bill
    # number of field entries allocated 20, used 5
    0 PIN_FLD_POID POID [0] 0.0.0.1 /account 3162256 1
    0 PIN_FLD_BILLINFO_OBJ POID [0] 0.0.0.1 /billinfo 3162768 0
    0 PIN_FLD_PROGRAM_NAME STR [0] "pin_trial_bill_accts"
    0 PIN_FLD_START_T TSTAMP [0] (1311422402) Sat Jul 23 12:00:02 2011
    0 PIN_FLD_END_T TSTAMP [0] (1312804801) Mon Aug 08 12:00:01 2011

  5. See output flist that the charges from product purchased in step 2 are not applied. The trial invoice does not include the cycle fee for the period 7-AUG-2011 to 7-SEP-2011
  6. 07 Aug : run billing for the account. See that the MCF from the product purchased in step 2 is now applied
