New Data Service MCF Charges Are Not Impacting The /balance_group/monitor (Doc ID 1940313.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 24, 2023

Applies to:

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


On : version, Subscription Management

When a data service is added, data MCF (Monthly Cycle Forward) charges are not impacting the /balance_group/monitor even though data service is added as a member of /group/sharing/monitor.

As observed, no OBG (Ordered Balance Group) is created for the new data service added into the existing subscription group.

Subscription of member service MCF is shown, but when new data service with MCF is added to group that is not shown in BM (Balance Monitor).

OBG should be created for this new service and MCF impact should also shown in BM.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Create an account and DSG (Data Sharing Group).

        a. Account is created with PCM_OP_CUST_COMMIT_CUSTOMER - /account 907819 0
        b. Purchase account level discounts with PCM_OP_SUBSCRIPTION_PURCHASE_DEAL -

        b. Add subscription and member services to DSG group with PCM_OP_SUBSCRIPTION_SHARING_GROUP_MODIFY.
        c. Create OBGs for subscription and member services with PCM_OP_SUBSCRIPTION_ORDERED_BALGRP_BULK_MODIFY.
        d. Create /balance_group/monitor with PCM_OP_CUST_SET_BAL_GRP - /balance_group/monitor 908153
        e. Create GSM with subscription group as parent and monitor type as SUB_CE - /group/sharing/monitor is created with PCM_OP_SUBSCRIPTION_SHARING_GROUP_CREATE - /group/sharing/monitor 905465
        f.  When GSM is created with event notification and AMS, subscription and member services are added to GSM and OBGs are updated with GSM.
 3. Add new data service to subscription group.

        a. If new service is to be created then delete all services from DSG else do not remove from DSG. DSG group is removed from OBGs.
        b. Data service is created by calling PCM_OP_CUST_MODIFY_CUSTOMER, and with AMS new service is added to GSM. OBG is not creating for this new service.
        c. Subscription & member services are added back to DSG group by calling PCM_OP_SUBSCRIPTION_SHARING_GROUP_MODIFY
        d. OBGs are updated with DSG group with PCM_OP_SUBSCRIPTION_ORDERED_BALGRP_BULK_MODIFY.

 4. Run pin_monitor_balance
