6.5 - 7.5 Upgrade Scripts Not Populating Fields In Invoice_t

(Doc ID 1584515.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 21, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version 7.5.0.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Issue:
--------
The following invoice_t fields are not getting populated by the upgrade scripts:

inv_flags, status, billinfo_obj_db, billinfo_obj_id0, billinfo_obj_type, billinfo_obj_rev

Upgrade path is from 6.5 - 7.5PS5.
Once upgraded to 7.4, noticed that the mentioned invoice_t fields are not being updated. These new fields got added as part of the 7.3.1 - 7.4 (which is part of the 7.3 - 7.4 upgrade) but they never get populated with anything. The values are NULL. There are no errors in the log files during the schema upgrade.

These fields are updated when New invoices get generated or when the older ones are Re-generated via pin_inv_accts -regen option. For the old legacy invoices (i.e. BRM 6.5 system) these fields are NULL.
They are simply omitted from the upgrade process all together.

Expectations:  
----------------
These fields should be populated by the upgrade scripts.


Upgrade Path:
-----------------
Incremental upgrades from 6.5 - 7.3, 7.3 - 7.4, 7.4 -7.5
