sub balance valid_from is getting rounded to midnight with the purchase fee event balance impact
Currently,if the timestamp rounding is enabled [- fm_bill timestamp_rounding 1], all non-currency resources which are granted through the cycle forward event, bal_grp_sub_bals_t.valid_from is getting rounded to mid night.
Requirement is that if users need to create one time product, which will grant resources on daily or Hourly basis.
Resource validity should start immediately when the product purchased and end after the specified hours or days..
Granting 100KB for 10 Hrs validity.
Purchase a product on 06-May-2014 07:00:00 AM.
Resource validity should be
06-May-2014 07:00:00 AM to 06-May-2014 05:00:00 PM
When the above scenario was tested.
Resource validity is
06-May-2014 00:00:00 AM to 06-May-2014 10:00:00 AM.
This behavior is due to the reason valid_from is getting rounded to midnight.
In BRM document, it is specified that
the start time of the resources granted by cycle events is rounded to midnight.
However, the start time of the resources granted by purchase events is not rounded to midnight.
