(Doc ID 1621599.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 18, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control - Version 5.0.0 to 5.0.2 [Release 5.0]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)

Symptoms

In Network Charging and Control (NCC) 5.0.0+, when attemping to open a Sub-Control Plan Node (SCPN) in an Control Plan (CP) where the referenced Sub-Control Plan and Parent Control Plan are both imported, the following error occurs:

The control plan that was previously selected - Sub Test 1 has either been removed or failed to compile.

For example:

Changes

Both the Sub-Control Plan and Parent Control Plan are imported from another environment and the destination environment also uses Historical Control Plans.

"Historical Control Plans" are essentially a couple of disabled database triggers which purge older revisions of Control Plans.  This allows for backups of CPs to exist should an urgent rollback be required.
