Billing and Revenue Management Pipeline Developer 7.5 Training

Learn To

In this technical course, students will develop an in-depth understanding of the Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management Pipeline Manager and its architecture. The Pipeline Developer class is appropriate for students who need to customize pipeline behavior. The creation of an EDR container using description files is also discussed along with how to create a custom Extended Rating Attribute. In addition, the course explains the process for batch pricing and rating. During the hands-on lab, students will customize the Pipeline Manager using IScript and IRule to implement new system functionalities.
