ACS Chassis Parameter OverwriteFci Not Working As Expected (Doc ID 2718585.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 12, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control - Version 12.0.2.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control (NCC) 12.0.2.0.0 version

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------

As per NCC Advanced Control Services (ACS) Technical Guide, "overwriteFci" parameter inside acs.conf is used to control when a new Furnish Charging Information (FCI) is appended to an existing FCI or overwrites an existing FCI.

For Voice calls, Customer require an FCI before the connect/release operation. For example in case of Successful billing they want to send FCI 1 and if the Universal Attempt Termination with Billing (UATB) Feature Node fails, they want to send FCI 2. However instead of sending FCI B, NCC sends FCI 1 + 2 concatenated together.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Successful billing should send FCI 1 and If the UATB node fails, it should send FCI 2.

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

1. On NCC 12.0.2 Version, SMS Screen--> ACS -> Resources -> Tariff Codes -> New, Create two different FCI codes. FCI 1 and FCI 2.
2. Create a new control plan using the following Nodes.

  Start Node--> Set Tariff Code 1 (FCI 1) -> AT node -> Set Tariff Code 2 (FCI 2)--> End Node
  Set Tariff Code 1 (FCI 1)---Connect Tariff Set Exit Branch to ATnode, Tariff Not Set Branch to End Node
  Connect AT node Success Node to End Node and Remaining failure exist to Set Tariff Node 2
  Connect remaining Exists to End Node

3. Set a subscriber with insufficient funds and use the above Control Plan and trigger the same using a slpit script.

4. Check whether you are getting FCI1+ FCI2 concatenated together.
