Last updated on JUNE 28, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version 7.5.0.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

There is a use case where one is trying to achieve pro-ration for a fixed discount through the BTD (Billing Time Discount).

Use case:
*  Discount is set for pro-ration both at the purchase time and at the cancel time.
*  The discount is purchased during the middle of the cycle.
*  The discount is based on the billing(BTD).
*  At the end of the cycle when billing is run, there is full discount that is applied instead of the prorated amount.

Steps:
1) Created an account on Aug 1st with monthly fee product with $20.
2) Purchased a Billing Time Discount on 15th Aug which gives flat $10.
3) Run Billing on Sep 1st.

Expectation:
BRM should prorate the discount based on the validity period.
In the above scenario, it should have given a flat $5 discount whereas it is giving $10.
