Symptoms

On BRM: 7.5.0.5.0 version, Core Billing

Issue:


No prorating is happening for Charge Sharing group. After creation of CSG in mid of the month, proration is expected to happen in the next bill of CSG owner & member but this is not happening.

Scenario:

  1. Create account no. 1 (2014-08-01 00:01)
  2. Create service for account no.1 and purchase offer product with monthly cycle forward event. (2014-08-01 00:01);
  3. Proceed with billing and invoicing (2014-09-01 00:00) 4. Create account no. 2 (2014-09-16 00:00);
  4. Create technical service for account no. 2 (2014-09-16 00:00);
  5. Create Charge Sharing Group - technical service of 2nd account sponsors 100% of charge of 1st account's service (2014-09-16 00:00).
  6. Proceed with billing and invoicing (2014-10-01 00:00)


Expected result:


At step 5 (after creation of Charge Sharing Group) we expect proper prorating: -65,04 discount should be filed for account no. 1 and 65,04 charge should be filed for account no. 2 (sponsorship for the remaining period of 2014-09-16 - 2014-09-30).

Obtained result:


No prorating is performed, sponsorship for period 2014-09-16 - 2014-09-30 is never filed, even after next billing.
