Is it possible to disable the mechanism in OBAS that processes invoices to move from Open status to Overdue and later Cutoff?
It is impossible to drop Overdue and Cutoff statuses from OBAS completely but there is a way to make an Invoice to be Open almost for eternity.
According to the Provider's Guide:
Invoice due period - the period of time during which an Invoice should be paid. The due period starts right after an invoice is generated. If an invoice is still not paid by the end of due period, such invoice becomes overdue and the overdue period for an invoice starts.
Thus, to make invoices Open for a very long time, please go
Top > Account Director > Subscription Manager, select a Credit Terms and set Invoice due period to 99999 years.
The operation needs to performed for each of the Credit Terms used, one by one. Since Resellers have Credit Terms of their own, the operation should be performed in each RCC for every credit terms used.
