Incorrect Value Is Added Into PIN_FLD_AR_ITEM_OBJ When ‘deferred_tax_journaling’ Is Enabled (Doc ID 2827909.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 31, 2022

Applies to:

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


Following behavior is observed post-migration from BRM7.5 PS15 to BRM12 PS3:

With the 'deferred tax journaling' parameter set to 2 (enabled), when a usage event is inserted, it creates a new /item object which has the wrong value in PIN_FLD_AR_ITEM_OBJ field.


Because the AR_ITEM_OBJ_TYPE field is not null, billing does not use this event to calculate taxes.

If the PIN_FLD_AR_ITEM_OBJ is updated to null:

update item_t set ar_item_obj_db = 0, ar_item_obj_type = null where poid_id0 = 2600544765;

Then the billing takes this event to calculate the taxes correctly. The problem is in the REL procedure in the database.

With the parameter 'deferred tax journaling' setting to 0 (disabled), the taxes are calculated correctly.
