Problem: [40449] Migration out system issue charging outstanding fees without acknowledgement Status: Closed
Problem description Added on: 22/02/2007 @ 17:06

It would appear that the system is automatically charging customers outstanding fees upon notification of a migration out (including deferred contracts) without acknowledgement of the customer.

It appears the system does not allow outstanding contracts on downgraded accounts. The system should downgrade the account and keep any outstanding contracts in place until customer has confirmed payment can be taken, or is sent to debt recovery.

Problem investigated, I've found the code at fault and fixed the issue.

We need to get the fix code reviewed and tested by Quality Assurance; I'm arranging this now. I've ensured that the script is not run on live until it is fixed.

The problem has passed peer review, the “Quality Assurance” team will review the changes tomorrow morning. To reiterate this script will not run until we have put it back in full working order.

We have now resolved this problem and automatic charging of any fees upon completion of an outbound migration should not take place. Customers will be expected to settle their Deferred fees within a set period, or will be transferred to debt recovery by Finance process.
