7.5 FCT_Discount And Zero Charge Packets (Doc ID 1903494.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 11, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version 7.5.0.0.0 to 7.5.0.0.0 [Release 7.5.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

There is a discrepancy between how FCT_Discount works in 7.2.1 vs 7.5

Steps to Reproduce the issue:

1. Add IFW_RATEADJUST row that discounts the usage by "- 100 EUR"

2. Create account with bundle for X seconds

3. Rate usage below 100 EUR (e.g 30 EUR)
4. Bundle should not be consumed at all, due to the CHARGE_AMOUNT_VALUE = 0

During rating on both 7.2.1 and 7.5 system there is a discrepancy.

Upon closer check it was found out that FCT_Discount in 7.5 is still applying discount for a CP (Charge Packet) that has CHARGE_AMOUNT_VALUE equal to 0, while in 7.2.1 there is no discount.
