Customization of Bill Numbers for Subord Bills (Doc ID 2143146.1)

Last updated on JUNE 10, 2016

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 requirement to differentiate Subordinate Bills from their Parent Bills through their Bill_No.

In OOB, BRM designates the same Bill_No to Parent & Subord Bills during the Billing time of the Parent Bill.
Customization in PCM_OP_BILL_POL_POST_BILLING policy opcode:
1. After normal billing of the Parent bill is done and all updates to Parent & Subord Bills and items are done, use the Parent Bill Poid to search for all the Subord Bills which have this Parent Bill Poid in the PIN_FLD_PARENT.
2. Get the Subord Bills, and in each of them, append the existing Bill NO with another data piece, say a Purchase Order Number (Custom Entity associated with the Subord Billinfo).
3. The point 2 is not done for the Child default Billinfo but for an additional Billinfo which is defined as the Child PO Billinfo.

e.g.
Account No    Bill No                               Bill object Poid     Parent Bill Object    Note
030-117663   B1-560-ChildPO117663   128094                121042                  128094 is Child PO bill Poid for this cycle
030-117663   B1-560                             131312                121042                  131312 is Child Default Bill Poid for this cycle
030-121692   B1-560                             121042                 0                           121042 is Parent Default Bill Poid for this cycle


Questions :
========
1. Does the above raise any concerns w.r.t to Oracle BRM Core code in Billing or other functionality module?
2. Any other impact on this customization?
