Symptoms

After installing Patch 12985440, discount is not getting triggered immediately after the purchase of a discount. We could see it getting invoked at the time of billing only.

Before applying the patch, event cycle discount was getting generated at the time of discount purchase.

The following is the logic implemented for discounting cycle forward fees, which is being broken by the mentioned, unexpected behavior:
  *  At the account post-commit an product called of type service "Service/Promotions" is purchased by default; this product has a monthly_cycle_forward event with zero charge.
  *  Discount product is purchased which would apply discount on monthly_cycle_forward event of service/promotion type.
