Reservation Amounts Disregarded By BRM Opcodes PCM_OP_BILL_DEBIT, PCM_OP_SUBSCRIPTION_PURCHASE_DEAL (Doc ID 2498923.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 04, 2019

Applies to:

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


On : version, Account Migration Manager

Actual Behavior:

Balance with active reservation can be debited up to the total amount of balance regardless of the reservation amount. When the reservation amount is committed balance goes over 0. No error or credit limit notification sent.
Similarly a deal can be purchased when total of the balance is reserved.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Create account.
2. Recharge 10 EUR
3. Simulate an ongoing data session (no terminate sent) with reservation amounts 5 EUR.
4. Attempt PCM_OP_BILL_DEBIT for 8 EUR.
At this point the opcode should fail as the balance is -10 EUR but 5 is in reservation so the actual available balance should be 5 EUR. The actual behavior is that is passes and the balance after and the balance is -2 with 5 in reservation
5. Send terminate request for the data session. The reservation is applied and the balance goes over 0 to +3 EUR. Which should NOT be possible.

User-defined MAIN_BALANCE (1500978) resource is used as the main resource.
