How BRM Bills Hierarchical Accounts (Doc ID 726450.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 20, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version 7.0.0.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

If parent account and child account have different bill cycle days, how BRM align the billing?

e.g.
1.  Create a parent account A with DOM=23 on May 14, then change bill DOM=16 right away.
     This account A's actg_next_t would be May 23 and actg_future_t would be Jun 16.
2.  Create a child account B with DOM=16 on May 14, then move account B under account A as subordinate account.
     Account A pays for account B. 
     Account B's actg_next_t would be May 16 and actg_future_t would be Jun 16.

When running  pin_bill_accts -pay_type 10007 (PIN_PAY_TYPE_SUBORD) on May 16, it will collect amount from account B and update bill object of account B.
When running pin_bill_accts -pay_type 10001 against account A on May 23, observed:
   - total due of parent bill didn't collect the amount of the item's due of the child account.
   - the items of child account will always be outstanding item, because of zero amount due in parent's bill.

Is the issue caused by different bill days against hierarchical account?
