VTYB Does Not Work with CB10 Vouchers (Doc ID 2122034.1)

Last updated on JUNE 19, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control - Version 5.0.3 to 5.0.3 [Release 5.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In Oracle Communcations Network Charging and Control (OCNCC) 5.0.3, a new Voucher Type Branching (VTYB) node was introduced which allowed logic based on the Voucher Type information currently in the control plan call context.

The VTYB node's Voucher Information(VI) request to the Voucher and Wallet Server (VWS), does not work for CB10 vouchers.  No error message is printed, however an unexpected exit is taken out of the VTYB node and the following can be seen in the slee_acs debug:

2016/02/03 22:24:35   ccsCommonVoucherSQL.pcc   132 [12135]            ccsCommon     In bool ccs::voucher::retrieveCcsVoucherByNumber(const char*, int, ccs::voucher::CcsVoucherRef*)
2016/02/03 22:24:35   ccsCommonVoucherSQL.pcc   149 [12135]            ccsCommon     Looking up voucher number '41804729182323'
2016/02/03 22:24:35   ccsCommonVoucherSQL.pcc   184 [12135]            ccsCommon     Unable to find the voucher, returning false.
2016/02/03 22:24:35            VoucherInfo.cc    71 [12135] sVWARSVoucherHandler     there is no local voucher for this identifier

This issue does not affect nodes which perform a Voucher Redeem (VR) action to the VWS:

2016/02/04 01:39:05         VoucherReserve.cc   151 [12135] sVWARSVoucherHandler     Incoming voucher string is: 41804729182323
2016/02/04 01:39:05            ccsAuthRule.cc   575 [12135]   ccsCommon_AuthRule     validation successful!

As the node can be used based on the voucher currently in the Control Plan's Call Context, it is possible to use the VTYB node successfully after a node which performs a voucher VI action:

2016/02/04 02:58:00 csVoucherTypeBranching.cc   538 [7313]        ccsMacroNodes    VoucherTypeBranching State 4: Voucher type name = Scratch Card £10

Changes

Installation/update of NCC to 5.0.3 and the usage of the VTYB node in any Control Plan.
