Dear Convergent Charging and BRIM community, We are delighted to announce yet another new release of SAP Convergent Charging 2021 FPS 02. With this release, we continue to add new capabilities such as multi-currency support in rate plans, Single-sign on support in the Cockpit, and more new features.
It is usually a best practice to make your Rate Plans highly reusable. This cuts down significantly on maintenance and updates. In many cases, the same rate plan is used in different markets, regions, and currencies. To simplify the maintenance of rate plans for different currencies, we have added multi-currency support to rate plans.
Configuring Multi-Currency support in Rate Plans
With this new feature, you can now switch your rate plan to multi-currency mode with a button. A new external parameter of type Currency is available to capture the currency from the provider contract.
The benefits of this new feature will help pricing specialists to better simplify the maintenance of rate plans that compute pricing for different currencies.
You can learn more about this new feature from the following article on the SAP Help Portal: Parameterization of the Currency in Rate Plans (Multicurrency Support) (New)

SINGLE SIGN-ON USING SAML 2.0 IN THE COCKPIT
We now are compliant with SAML 2.0 for Single Sign-On (SSO) authentication of users for the SAP Convergent Charging Cockpit. To enable SSO authentication in the cockpit, we have enhanced the cockpit to enable authentication through a third-party authentication server (alse called an Identity Provider or IdP).
This new feature includes:
A parameter to store the URL of the IdP
A sign-in screen to inform cockpit users about IdP authentication
New role called Authorization Delegator available for the technical user and used for interactions between the cockpit and the core CC server.
This new feature greatly enhances the user experience with native single sign-on support in the cockpit and provides improved security and authentication compliance.
