Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal


When service is created by mistake with incorrect start date T1, there is a need to correct the start date. Oracle BRM 7.0 allows to change the start date to a later one T2 > T1. When the date is changed,no proration correction is performed, so the assigned amount of free units is exactly as it was before change of start date.

Scenario is:
1. Create service with effective date T1, e.g. 11th Aug. Free units (Free minutes) are prorated and customer gets 28Free minutes.
2. Change service start date to T2 > T1, e.g. to 16th Aug. Free units should be prorated again and customer should get 22Free minutes. But amount of Free minutes does not change.
