Negative Net Win Is Not Working Properly For The First Billing Period (Doc ID 1933261.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 06, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Service Contracts - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 12.1.3 version, Contracts Billing/Termination

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Main Billing program is not working properly for the first billing period.

Applied Patch 18233437:R12.OKS.B.
Set the profile 'OKS: Enable Negative Invoicing' to Yes at Site level.

When the first counter reading is negative, the billing amount is not calculated appropriately. Instead of a negative amount, the system calculates the value as ZERO.

What is Working:
-------------------------
The solution provided by Oracle addresses all other periods, but not the initial period negative case. When counter reading is negative for the first period of a contract line, the billing comes with ZERO instead of the expected negative amount.


STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Set the profile 'OKS: Enable Negative Invoicing' to Yes at Site level
2. Create a Usage Contract with a counter
3. Enter a -ve reading for the 1st billing period.
4. Run Main Billing Program.
