Information in this document applies to any platform.

On :  7.5.0.6.0 version, Core Billing

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR 
Cycle charges applied twice for product having both annual & monthly cycle forward event configured 

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
Cycle charges should not be doubled when both annual and monthly cycle forward event is configured.

STEPS
Consider the below scenario:

(i)  Create an account with plan A (having monthly cycle forward) on 8th Apr’2015 [BDOM -8].
(ii) Change the PVT to 5th May’2015.
(iii) Do plan change to Plan B  (having the product where annual and monthly cycle forward event configured) on 5th May’2015.
(iv) Run re-rating [pin_rerate]
(v)  Run billing on 8th May’2015.

OBSERVATION

(a) On doing the plan change proper annual cycle charges of $218.5 (including tax) applied with proper start and end dates (5th May’2015 – 5th May’2016], program name coming as “PLAN TRANSITION”.
(b) On running re-rating two balance impact created one of $218.5 with program name as “pin_rerate” and another - $218.5 with program name “PLAN TRANSITION”.
(c) On running billing on 8th May, one balance impact is getting created with $218.5 with program name as – “TEST BILL”
But the date appears as 5th May’2015, there by making the charge double.

[Please note that in the product $199 is configured against the annual_cycle_forward event and 0 against monthly_cycle_forward event]
