Symptoms

On patch set version 7.5.0.6.0, it was observed that cycle discount charges [PIN_FLD_CYCLE_DISC_AMT] are refunded when service status is changed to inactive in the below scenario.

Scenario:

  1. On 1st Feb: Create a customer account with a monthly cycle forward (mcf) product and during purchase, provide "Discount recurring fees" = 100. So CYCLE_DISC_AMT field is populated in purchased_product_t table for this account, and the customer is charged with the Discounted amount.

    For example: The cycle forward charge is 500 and CYCLE_DISC_AMT is 100. So /item/cycle_forward will have a due of 400 on ‘01-Feb-20’.

    The mcf product has proration rule:
             On purchase in mid of cycle: prorate
             On Cancellation in mid of cycle: Full charge
  2. On 28th Feb: Service got suspended using op_cust_set_status with below flist:   
  3. When the suspension happened, another /item/cycle_forward of 100 got applied on ‘28-Feb-2020’. See below for example, some details of the events:

    ACCOUNT_OBJ_ID0----SERVICE_OBJ_ID0----POID_TYPE----POID_ID0----SYS_DESCR----AMOUNT----PROGRAM_NAME----UTC(E.EARNED_START_T)----UTC(E.EARNED_END_T)
