Quota Profile Tag Values Not Encoded Correctly For Linux On NCC Version (Doc ID 2606034.1)

Information in this document applies to any platform.


On Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control (NCC), version,


The user is trying to implement "Quota Balance" balance type in NCC, with the ultimate goal of providing quota notifications when a subscriber reaches 80% of their allocated usage for a particular balance type.

During charging with the Voucher and Wallet Server (VWS), the Service Logic Controller (SLC) picks up on this profile tag, and provides it to the VWS in a "[QUOT]" tag in the FOX message, however it is encoded incorrectly as mentioned below:

Here 20000 is stored as 00 00 4e 20 (as above). The number it comes up with is 20 4e 00 00 - which is clearly wrong.

Quota profile tag values should be encoded correctly.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1) Set Time balance type as "Voice Quota", Category as "Quota Balance" using Primary Tag Set 1 and Secondary Tag Set 2.
2) Set Quota Notification 1 -> "Quota 80%" at 80% threshold.
3) Customer profile -> 0x140511 Quota Value 1 -> 00 00 4e 20 -> 20000
