On : ECE version, Diameter Gateway


Performed some tests about the RAR (Re-Auth Request Diameter Message) generation on the GY interface (between Network Element and ECE).

To trigger the RAR by using the Customer Center, two different methods are used in the use cases :
1- adjust a non-monetary balance
2- purchase an option bundle

After updating a balance, a single RAR event is generated. This case is working fine.

After purchasing an optional bundle, it is noticed that several RAR events are triggered, the number of RAR seems to be equal to 1 + the number of products included in the bundle.

After analyzing the ECE logs, it is observed that different event notifications are received during the tests:
which raise RAR events.

Q1: Is it possible to generate a single RAR in either way of the following:
      - either by filtering some notifications?
        For instance, why the PRODUCT_UPDATE notification raises a RAR event on GY interface? Instead, is it expecting to raise an event on Sp/Sh interface?
      - or, by aggregating all the notifications linked with the purchase?
Q2: In this use-case, it is believed that the numbers of extra "generated RARs" depend on the option bundle that are purchased and not because of the MSCC sub-sessions. Could you confirm the point?
