There are two objects in SAP CC that needs to be configured to pass information to the billing process. It’s either the Charged Item Class and/or the Refill Record Class. The result of the charging and rating process is the Charged Item.

Charged Item:

  • Is the output of the rating and charging processes
  • Stored into files (prepaid or postpaid channels)
  • Loaded in SAP Convergent Invoicing as Billable Items
  • The format of a charged item is described by a Charged Item Class.

Charged Item Class is used to retrieve and configure the information included in a Charged Item.
Charged Item Classes can be created and used for:

  • The SAP ERP system -> create Charged Item Class from the billable item mapping
  • Any other external system -> create Charged Item Class from scratch

Charged Item Class is represented by a tree in the core tool of Convergent Charging. Each node of the tree represents a value of type string, number, date or boolean. We need to configure how these values are generated by the system.

On the other hand, a Refill Record is the output of the refilling process.

Refill Records:

  • Are stored into files (prepaid channel).
  • Are then loaded in SAP Convergent Invoicing as Billable Items.
  • The format of a Refill Record is described by a Refill Record Class.

Refill Record Class
A Refill Record Class is used to retrieve and configure the information included in a refill record. Refill Records are the resulting transactions of the refilling process

Refill Record classes can be created and used for:

  • The SAP ERP system -> create refill record class from the billable item mapping
  • Any other external system -> create refill record class from scratch

Refill Record Class is represented by a table in the core tool of Convergent Charging. Each row of the table represents a property of type string, number, date or boolean. We need to Configure how the system generates these values.
