Loading Negative Value For Usage Does Not Produce The Expected Results (Doc ID 408265.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 03, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version and later
HP 9000 HP-UX 11.0 (32 bit)
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (32-bit)


Every time a negative value for usage is loaded, it impacts the resource balance with 1, instead of impacting it with the negative amount that was loaded.

For example :

Load -500 usage
Expected balance : -500
Actual balance : 1

We are using both UEL and PCM_OP_ACT_USAGE to load usage.

Input flist for PCM_OP_ACT_USAGE is :


This procedure works great for positive numbers. The problem is only with negative numbers.

Expected Result : -500 * <rate_defined>
-500 : loaded amount for usage
<rate_defined> : scaled amount in the product's balance impact

Actual Result : 1 * <rate_defined>
