Balance Less Than The Beat Is Not Reserved During Reverse Rating (Doc ID 2650912.1)

Information in this document applies to any platform.


The below is a use case where we are unable to reserve the remaining balance during reverse rating once the balance of the non currency resource is below the beat value.

Balance less than the beat is not reserved during reverse rating

we grant data either at start of the cycle through cycle-events or daily through a conditional RUM
These grants have credit limit set to zero.
For eg. 1 GB of data is granted (-1GB) and the resource credit limit is set 0
During rating these granted resources are consumed.

Suppose the balance in the resource is -60 KB.
We also have a requirement that data rating should be multiples of 50kb (Beat)
what we observe is we are able to only consume 50 kb from the available 60kb data.

CCR-U (GSU gives only 50kb) with FUI set and redirection set.
CCR-U (USU 50kb), there isn't further GSU granted.

By this we are not able to consume remaining 10 kb of data.
Also as we change the policy labels when the resource depletes fully, in this case we are not able to do it.
Also as there isn't full consumption the CL notifications are also not triggered.

Is there a way how we can make sure we consume the remaining 10 kb.
i.e. in CCR-U request breaches and reverse rating is triggered can we also ensure when FUI is set in that case all the remaining balance is allowed?
