Incorrect Charging for Cycle Arrear Product (Doc ID 2891010.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 23, 2022

Applies to:

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


When subscribing an offer containing cycle arrear product, a charge is generated and applied to the bill that is to be finalized the next day (delay period = 1 day). That means this cycle arrear product behaves like cycle forward product.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Pin Virtual Time (PVT) = 08.07.2021
- Create billing account with Bill Day of the Month (BDOM) = 8, user Account, and access service
- Subscribe monthly cycle forward offer with immediate start_t
2. PVT = 08.08.2021, opening billing
3. PVT = 09.08.2021, closing billing
4. PVT = 08.09.2021, opening billing
5. PVT = 08.09.2021 15:00, subscribe cycle arrear offer with start date set to 08.09.2021
6. PVT = 09.09.2021, closing Billing

As a result, the charge generated during subscription of cycle arrear offer on 8.9.2021 is assigned to the current bill closed on 9.9.2021, not to the next bill.
