Control Plans are Not Invoked for Traffic Triggering the CCS_BPL Service Handle/Capability for Unprovisioned Subscribers (Doc ID 1473901.1)

Last updated on JULY 18, 2012

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control - Version 4.4.0 and later
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)

Symptoms

On an SLC (Service Logic Controller), it is possible to direct traffic to the CCS_BPL Service Handle/Capability and in particular, the CCS (Charging Control Services) service loader library.

The benefit of the CCS_BPL Service Handle is that it allows the invoking interface to define an ACS (Advanced Control Services) Control Plan in the IDP (Initial Detection Point).  An example of such an interface is the osdInterface, which is part of the OSD (Open Services Development) module.

However when attempting to trigger any control plan via OSD with an unprovisioned subscriber, the following error occurs:

Where XXXXXXXXXXX contains the originating address or calling party (or Calling Line Identifier, CLI).

This causes slee_acs (loads and runs the control plan logic) to return an error to the initiating interface and the call/request to fail.

Changes

Service logic implemented where unprovisioned subscribers are able to trigger the CCS_BPL service (for provisioning and/or in convergent billing solutions etc).
