Application Features 

Enhanced Support For High-Precision Usage For Vantiv Payment Gateway (DEV-8494)

This feature allows up to 12 digits of precision (excluding the decimal point) when reporting a usage quantity to Vantiv (Litle) payment gateway.


NETS Payment Amount Configuration (DEV-8636)

This enhancement adds the ability to only send the value of a single statement's balance, rather than the full balance due. This option is configurable allowing customers who want to send the full balance to NETS to continue to do so.

To support this feature, a new client parameter has been added.

Getting Here: Click > Configuration > Payments > Payment Settings

Payment Settings Screen - NETS Collection Amount.jpg

  1. The NETS Collection Balance client parameter governs the behavior to employ when collecting balance due, and NETS is the payment method. Typically, this client setting would only be changed when invoices are billed in advance of the recurring bill cycle (negative bill lag days) such that more than one statement will be generated prior to the first statement being paid in full. 

Note: The NETS Collection Balance is set to Full Balance by default.

 To alter the default system behavior in order to collect on the current statement balance, first click on this setting.

Payment Settings Screen - Value Drop Down.jpg

  1. Click on this setting's Value drop down arrow.

Payment Settings Screen - Current Statement_Save.jpg

  1. Click on Current Statement Balance from the dropdown.
  2. Click on the Save button.

Account Visualization - Phase 1 - Beta (DEV-8656)

This enhancement is being released in beta, and supports the visualization of detailed account hierarchy in the form of a tree diagram via a screen overlay launched from within the Aria application. This new feature also allows the user to easily move between an account's detailed visual hierarchy, and the Aria application. Clients can control what level of users can see the account hierarchy overlay screen.

Getting Here: Configuration > Security > Roles

Role - Account Access.jpg

  1. An Aria user is required to be associated with a "Role" that permits Account Access at the Power CSR level. 

Getting Here: Configuration > Security > Account Access > Account Overview > Pages > Account Hierarchy

The Account Hierarchy Overlay screen displays. The selected account card (highlighted in blue), is visually represented with other account cards that comprise its account hierarchy makeup. As Parents' parents and Children's children are displayed - Up to four (4) levels of account hierarchy are displayed at any time without the need to scroll on a 1024 X 768 resolution.

When there are no more account cards to show - the "right arrow" will disappear, and the user may no longer advance to the right. However, the "left arrow" will still be present. 

When there is no longer a "right arrow" (but there is a "left arrow" - by selecting the "left arrow" - the user is advanced up to 4 accounts to the left. Selecting the "left arrow" again will continue to advance the user up to 4 account cards to the left until there is no more "left arrow" and the "right arrow" appears again. Only the children (grandchildren, etc. of one account are shown at any time.

  1. A colored dot indicating the account's current status:
    green dot.jpg Active or Permanent
    Yellow Dot.jpg Registered Pending Activation or Temporary Service Ban
    Red Dot.jpg Deactivated or Archived

Application Fixes 

  • Child Account user id's were not displaying on the Account Overview (Account Hierarchy Glance) or Manage Child Account screens (TICKET-15856)
  • Bill, and anniversary dates were changing even though invoicing failed when combined_invoice = "True", and the plan was being assigned with a retroactive_start_date, and override_bill_thru_date (TICKET-15923)
  • When creating a Master Plan instance with an alt_start_date where the plan is created in an inactive status, the queued future update failed. (TICKET-15932)
  • When a plan was set to “inactive” or “suspended,” the tax region associated with the account was not sent to the tax engine for the related line item during invoice generation, resulting in a tax error. (TICKET-15889)

API Fixes 

  • issue_refund_to_acct_m was creating a refund, but failing to reverse invoice line items using the invoice_trans_to_reverse input field (TICKET-15647)
  • record_external_payment_m was failing to record an external payment when the master plan instance was in a suspended status (TICKET-15788)
  • When calling get_acct_plans_all_m, with the flag "include_product_fields" = "TRUE," the call would take a long time to complete or time out. (TICKET- 15891)
  • amount_reserved_for_anniversary was returning a value in the wrong format when using get_unapplied_service_credits_m to retrieve information on a credit service amount (TICKET-15930)
  • When calling create_order_m, orders were not created and an "Unexpected Error" was thrown if the inventory item was associated with a non-active plan instance. Now, Aria supports orders for several plan instance statuses as follows:
     
    Plan Instance Status Code Plan Instance Status Order Allowed?
    1 Active Yes
    3 Pending Termination Yes
    2 Pending Cancellation Yes
    41 Trial Yes
    61 Active Non-Billable Yes
    0 Inactive Yes
    -1 Suspended Yes
    -3 Terminated No
    -2 Canceled No
    32 Pending Activation Yes
    31 Pending Installation Yes
    (TICKET-15790 & TICKET-15945)
  • When calling update_acct_plan_multi_m, with the expected result of a prorated invoice, the call would return "OK" (i.e. no errors), but the call would fail silently within Aria (TICKET-15755)​
  • create_order_with_plan_m was returning an unexpected error when a coupon was applied to the order as an input in the call (TICKET-16023)
