Fleio billing cron

Fleio billing cron is a script that is executed periodically via a cron job. When run this script will update resource usage for all clients and if needed will generate invoices or automatically settle usage from client credit. The behaviour of this script can be controlled via client configurations.

How it works

When run the fleio billing cron will do the following operations for each client in the following order:

  • if client is active will process all client services and generate invoices or settle usage based on client configuration
  • will process cancellation requests for client services, regardless of client status
  • will update client usage regardless of client status since even if client is suspended we may still have active services with suspend date overridden
  • if client is suspended will check if client has enough credit now and if so it will resume the client if it was suspended because not enough credit
  • if client is active will check credit status and suspend client if suspend conditions match or send out of credit notifications if needed
  • if client is suspend will check to see if client has some services with suspend overridden and if overridden date has passed those services will be suspended

When to run

In order to process usage and suspend clients in a timely manner this cron should be run frequently. We recommend running this once every 10 minutes.
