ECE Is Granting Multiple Data Grants During Midnight Rating (Doc ID 3011064.1)

Last updated on MARCH 21, 2024

Applies to:

Oracle Communications BRM - Elastic Charging Engine - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Customer has a roaming promotion which can be used while roaming abroad. With this promo, customer gets currency and buckets which have validity for 1 day (till mid-night). Validity starts on first usage.

This promo and configurations work fine when session starts and ends on same day. However, customer has seen weird results when session starts near to mid-night and ends next day. In such cases, instead of consuming the existing bucket, ECE (Elastic Charging Engine) is granting same buckets multiple times (more than 60 times in some cases).

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

1. 23:50 -  ECE and BRM (Billing Revenue Management) pin_virtual_time changed.
2. 23:56 -  Data session initiated.
3. 23:59 -  Update request passed.
4. 00:02 -  Another update request passed.
5. 00:04 -  Data Session terminate.
