Child Items Not Updated By Parent Billing when the Parent Billing is Late (Doc ID 1579869.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 02, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version 7.3.0.0.0 to 7.3.0.0.1 [Release 7.3.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

This problem happens when the Parent account is billed later than the Child account :

  1. Create a product with cycle_foward

  2. Create a Parent and a Child account on Jan 01 purchasing the product created in step 1

  3. Run billing for the Child account on Feb 01, Mar 01 and April 01 without billing parent (this may happen if some kind of problem happens with the parent). It is possible to run

  4. Now bill the parent by passing end_t as Feb 01 to the PCM_OP_BILL_MAKE_BILL opcode

     
    where "1" means PENDING (unbilled) and "2" means OPEN (billed).

Changes

This problem is known to BRM 7.3.0.0.0 so moving to that version of software, or starting using Parent-Child hierarchy may introduce this as a new problem.
