The Login Exclusion Configuration Was Not Effective

(Doc ID 1679488.1)

Last updated on JULY 27, 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

On :  7.5.0.0.0 version, Activity Opcodes

In order to improve performance of real-time AAA requests by searching for the service using aliases rather than the login, a custom services for login exclusion has been configured as described in the BRM documentation:

/service/telco/st_cellular/voice
/service/telco/st_cellular/sms
/service/telco/st_cellular/data

However, when performing a real-time AAA request, CM logs showed that BRM was still searching for the service using the login first and then using the aliases.
The /config/login_exclusion object in the BRM data was verified as correct and CM has been restarted, but it seemed that the login exclusion configuration was not effective.

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR  
---------------
AAA requests by searching for the service still using the login first.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
AAA requests by searching for the service should be using the aliases first.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Configure /config/login_exclusion to search alias names first and login names second for specified service types
2. Restart the system
3. Perform AAA opcodes
