CPBM Jobs

 
 
 

Jobs are system-generated tasks to run in a given time period to accomplish activities such as billing.

The jobs in CloudPortal Business Manager include the following:
Batch Job Name Start time Dependence on others Seen in UI Job successful sign Overview Notice mail when job fails
Manager (dailyBillingJob) 1:00 A.M.every day None Yes Status is displayed in UI as completed, with adjacent blue circle. Check the description in the UI in case of error status.

All billing processing is done by "DailyBillingJob". By default, this job is scheduled to run at 1:00 A.M. server time. There are two sub-processes in the DailyBilling job:

•First sub-process scans through all the service instances and fetches their usage data for the previous day. This data is converted into useful information which CloudPortal Business Manager can understand and is persisted.

•Second sub-process scans through all the tenants, picks up the information from the previous sub-process, uses it to update or post account statements, and make payments.

Both of these sub-processes are transactional; if any of the service instance fails during the reporting of daily usage, it is skipped and the next service instance is requested for its usage data. Similarly, if the second sub-process fails for a tenant, say during processing payment, it is once again skipped and the second tenant is processed.

Yes. Mail is sent to Admin support - on error, partial error, and warning.
Trial Expiry Job (trialExpiry) 3:10 A.M. every day None Yes Status is displayed in UI as completed, with adjacent blue circle. Check the description in the UI in case of error status. This job runs once every day and checks all trial accounts and calculates the time left for expiry of each account. Depending on the configuration, mails are sent to inform the customer of the days left until the trial expires. On expiry of the trial period, if the account is not converted to a paying account, the account is suspended. After account suspension, if the account is not still converted to a paying account within the configured number of days, then the account is terminated. Yes. Mail is sent to Admin support - on error, partial error, and warning.
Cloud Service Event Processing Job (cloudServiceEventProcessing) Every 6 minutes None. This job does not run when the dailyBilling job is running. Seen in UI only if job fails. Check the description in the UI in case of error status. This job polls connectors for every service instance and provides a list of events that CloudPortal Business Manager can understand. As a service provider, you can subscribe to these events and run any process that you want, such as monitoring, and so on. This job does not run when the dailyBilling job is running. No mail is sent.
Work Flow Job (workflowJob) Every 5 seconds None Seen in UI only if job fails. Check the description in the UI in case of error status.

Billing resiliency job

Whenever old usages are collected from the backend cloud service, CPBM sends a notification to the administrator. The administrator can run the billing resiliency job to process such usages that have not been reported and billed. Administrators can decide how to handle these old usages by configuring the parameter old.usage.process.config (found under Administration > Configuration > Portal > Billing > Configure) to one of the following:
Parameter value Action
0 Do not process these usages.
1 Export invoice feeds separately for these usages and do not apply the charges for these in the system. These feeds (csv/xml) can be used externally by the administrator for offline settlements.
2 Apply the charges for these old usages into the current billing period for each account.
3 Apply the charges for these old usages in the billing period to which they actually belong. This will affect the total charges, net amount and balance forward amounts of all the billing periods since the date of the usage up to the current period.

Total spend and total charges may increase if the job is run using configuration value 2 or 3 because usages or consumption not accounted for earlier get processed. This may cause some accounts to hit the spend limits and spend budgets in the current month. Hence it is advised to adjust these limits before running the billing resiliency job.

The billing resiliency job can be triggered by running the following mysql query from database:
update cloud_portal.QRTZ_TRIGGERS set NEXT_FIRE_TIME = (((UNIX_TIMESTAMP()+15)*1000)+1) where TRIGGER_NAME='billingResiliencyJobTrigger';
