Applies to:

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version: 7.3.0.0.0 to 7.3.0.0.1
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

For accounts in hierarchy, free resources are not calculated for some accounts that are non-paying members in the hierarchy.

Set Condition : Delay billing is enabled.

For non-hierarchical accounts, first event in new month generates free resource calculation.

Sample scenario:

- Account CHILD was created in Nov as payment responsible (current cycle 10.11-01.12)
- Beginning of December, after first usage, account got free minutes for December
- Account PARENT was created in December (current cycle 03.12-01.01.
- CHILD account moved under PARENT as non-paying. It inherited from parent the date of next bill, so current cycle of child became 10.11-01.01
- Run billing on 23.12 (for November) and CHILD account was not billed (because the date of his next bill is 01.01)
- PARENT account was not billed as well.
- In January CHILD account started to make usage, but he didn't get free resources.
