Discount Of Fixed Amount Does Not Prorate On Number Of Cycles In Case Of Multi Cycle Event. (Doc ID 2305616.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 26, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version 7.5.0.15.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

On all versions of Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management (BRM) in the following scenario:

1. Create a discount which refund fixed $100 per cycle.
2. Create a product configured with Monthly Cycle Forward (MCF) fee and 3 months in advance.
3. Purchase discount on June 29, 2017 with end date set to 2 months.
4. Purchase cycle_fee product on the same day (June 29, 2017).  Observe that charges generated for current (prorated) and advance 3 months period.

For the current month (prorated period) the discount is given on the prorated amount ($33.27) in this case, as it is less then $100, it discounts the entire amount.

On the advance period balance impact, although valid for more than a month, it is discounting only $100 instead of leftover of the first proration as well.

It is expected that:

1. Current cycle up to prorated amount ($33.27).
2. Advance period we are expecting to see discount of ($100 + ($100 - $33.27)) which is $166.73.

This article will explain whether there is any solution which can be followed to meet this requirement.
