    Hello colleagues,

    I understand that the status "guided" implies, that "The customer and pricing schema (product, pricing logic algorithm) used to rate the event has been found" (quoted from the file "TMF635_Usage_Management_API_User_Guide_v4.1.pdf" page 26). Let's assume that the guiding has happened. How would this be reflected in the usage ressource?

    As the product is only referenced in the RatedProductUsage sub ressource, and not in the usage ressource directly, these sub ressources need to be created. Since no rating has happened yet, it is not clear yet, how many sub ressources are to be created? As far as I can tell the number of RatedProductUsage ressources created for the usage ressource is determined at rating time. This implies, that after guiding the number of RatedProductUsage sub ressources is unknown.

    What am I missing?

    Thanks a lot for your thoughts

    Carsten
