In a TAP-IN, passthrough rating scenario, an input file has 2 CHARGE_PACKETS under one
ASSOCIATED_CHARGE_BREAKDOWN record. Each charge packet has a different charge, i.e.,
ASS_CBD.CP.CHARGED_AMOUNT_VALUE = 0.0960
MainRating is supposed to apply a passthrough markup of 20%
After MainRating executes, the figures become like this:
ASS_CBD.CP.CHARGED_AMOUNT_VALUE = 6389.94600
This behavior was observed when processing TAP-IN files. A number of operators send TAP-IN files
with two charges (i.e., one for PDP connection and another for the VOLUME). The correct markup is
applied to the first charge packet, but the second charge packet gets the same value as the first
one instead of getting the 20% markup.
Instead of applying 20% markup on both charges, MainRating applies markup on the first charge and
copies the same value onto the second charge. This essentially doubles the charge.
Steps To Reproduce:
1. Create a rateplan that applies passthrough rating with 20% markup.
2. Pass an input CDR with 2 charge packets into a pipeline.
