Billing Time Discount Not Applied After Offer Suspension

(Doc ID 1514423.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 11, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version 7.3.0.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

After offer suspension (i.e, inactivation of related /purchased_product and /purchased_discount objects) the billing time discount is not applied, regardless the offer was active during the entire billing period or not and the inactivation start date is dated to starting of next billing period. Although the /purchased_discount responsible for /event/billing/cycle/discount object generation has been already inactive during closing billing, the bill was correctly finalized. Therefore User thinks the billing time discount should have been generated.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Set pvt = 8.6.2012
2. Create account
3. Purchase offer triggering billing time discount
4. Set pvt = 20.6.2012
5. Rate usage with enough quantity to trigger billing time discount
6. Set pvt = 8.7.2012
7. Run partial billing (delay period)
8. Suspend offer from step 3
9. Set pvt = 10.7.2012
10. Run final billing

What is the reason behind this behavior ? Billing time discount is not applied.
