41 Voucher Manager Utilities

This chapter provides reference information for Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management (BRM) Voucher Manager utilities.

load_pin_dealers

Use this utility to load dealer information into the Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management (BRM) database. This utility loads dealer information from the pin_dealer file to a /config/dealers object.

You use this utility to configure a set of dealers for vouchers and identify the dealers associated with any specific card. The dealer names and codes are loaded into the database. See "About Dealers" and "Loading Dealer Details".

Note:

You cannot load separate /config/dealers objects for each brand. All brands use the same object.

Caution:

When you run the load_pin_dealers utility, it overwrites the existing dealers. If you are updating dealers, you cannot load new dealers only. You must load complete sets of dealers each time you run the load_pin_dealers utility.

Note:

To connect to the BRM database, the load_pin_dealers utility requires a configuration file in the directory from which you run the utility. See "Creating Configuration Files for BRM Utilities" in BRM System Administrator's Guide.

Location

BRM_Home/bin

Syntax

load_pin_dealers [-v] [-d] dealer_input_file

Parameters

-v

Displays information about successful or failed processing as the utility runs.

Note:

This parameter is always used in conjunction with other parameters and commands. It is not position dependent. For example, you can enter -v at the beginning or end of a command to initiate the verbose parameter. To redirect the output to a log file, use the following syntax with the verbose parameter. Replace filename.log with the name of the log file:

load_pin_dealers any_other_parameter –v > filename.log

-d

Writes error information for debugging purposes to the utility log file.

dealer_input_file

The name and location of the file that contains the dealer information. For example, the default file for dealer information is pin_dealers.

A sample definition file is provided in BRM_Home/sys/data/config/pin_dealers.

Use this syntax for entries:

dealer_name : dealer_code

Results

Reports success or displays an error.

By default, the file is located in the same directory as the utility and is called default.pinlog. You can specify a different name and location in the Infranet.properties file.

load_pin_recharge_card_type

Use this utility to load voucher information into the Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management (BRM) database.

See "About Recharge Card Types" and "Loading Recharge Card Details".

This utility associates card types with their dealers.

Note:

You cannot load separate /config/recharge_card_type objects for each brand. All brands use the same object.
