Goal

On Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management(BRM), 7.5.0.0.0. Version,

How to pre-create items at a balance group linked to a second billinfo (which has its own balance group & is not the account level balance group) ? Considering the account model as shown below, is it possible to pre-create an item at BP2 (linked to balance group BG2)?

Please note A denotes account, BP denotes bill profile, BG denotes balance group, S denotes service and SBG denotes service level balance group. 

A
|
- BP1 - BG1
  |
 S1 - SBG1
|
- BP2 - BG2
  |
 S2 - SBG2

In the above account model, BP1 is bill profile1 under account A and has balance group BG1. BG1 is also the account level balance group. S1 is a service under BP1 and has all service level charges tracked under the service level balance group SBG1.

Now, BP2 is another bill profile under the account A and has a balance group BG2 linked to it. This balance group is not linked to any other services under BP2. S2 is a service under BP2 and has all service level charges tracked under the service level balance group SBG2.

One can have pre-created items under the account level balance group by defining suitable item tags and types. Is it possible to pre-create similar item charges at BG2(a balance group which is linked to BP2 and is not the default account level balance group and also not linked to any services) as well?. BG2 is required so that all the bill profile level charges, other than the charges incurred by the services such as bill profile level adjustments etc and needs to be tracked separately.
