force-continue (OCS Partition)


Hierarchy Level


Enable subscriber traffic to flow before the first interrogation with the Online Charging System (OCS) occurs.

Wireline customers often control user services solely through the Policy Control and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) and use the OCS as a convenient real-time usage monitoring mechanism rather than as an enforcement unit. To decrease the number of possible erroneous OCS configurations, include the force-continue statement to force the broadband Policy and Charging Enforcement Function (BPCEF) to limit the impact of negative responses from the OCS and quota expirations, and to prevent sending OCS notifications for affected rating groups. Whenever the PCEF receives a negative response to any reported group, it stops reporting this group to the OCS.


The force-continue state is required; you must configure it in the OCS partition.
