Creating EBAL Multiple Times In Discount Rule Configuration (Doc ID 2506462.1)

Last updated on MARCH 12, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version 7.5.0.20.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

One has created discounting configuration with two rules which get executed one after another and both create the same EBal. What is expected in this case? Should EBal be "overwritten" the second time when it is created or not? Currently it seems that both values of EBal are summed up.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Create a discount model having below 3 discount Rules.

A. Rule 1:
   Drum Expression: TotalQ
   Rule Type : Tiered
   Drum Type : Quantity
 
   Threshold from : 0
   Threshold to : 120
 
   Impact/Consume: Euro
   Applied To : Event Owner
   Percentage : 50%
   Base Expression: TotalC
   Event Balance ID:511
 
 B. Rule 2:
   Drum Expression: TotalQ
   Rule Type : Tiered
   Drum Type : Quantity
   
   Threshold from : 120
   Threshold to   : infinity
   
   Impact/Consume: Euro
   Applied To : Event Owner
   Percentage : 80%
   Base Expression: TotalC
   Event Balance ID:511
 
C. Rule 3:
    Drum Expression: Ebal(511)
    Rule Type : Threshold
    Drum Type : Charge
   
    Threshold from : 0
    Threshold to   : infinity
   
    Impact/Consume: Euro
    Applied To : Event Owner
    Percentage : 1%
    Base Expression: Ebal(511)

2. Create the discount Model with above rules and use OOB (out of box) discount trigger [ DT10%OFF ] with Delayed GSM event
3. Create the discount object for the above discount Model
4. Create the deal having above discount object and use OOB product [Standard GSM Telephony]
5. Create the Plan for the above deal.
6. Create the account via Customer Center and pass the cdr. The discount trace looks like below:



Is this the correct behavior or should EBal value be overwritten with 0.480 instead ?
