xDR History

To easily view the xDR history for a particular entity you can use the xDR browser. It is not directly accessible from the main menu, since it needs to be accessed in the context of a specific customer / account etc.


Let’s assume that you want to view the xDR history for a particular customer. To go to the xDR view page click the View  icon on the Customer Management page.

The browser is also accessible from the Edit Customer page by clicking the xDRs button.


On the xDR History page you can make an extensible search via:

 If you want the information about the CDR_Failed to be included in the results list, select Show Unsuccessful Attempts.


To initiate a query, click the Show xDRs button. The result page will contain a summary displayed on the top of the screen and a table listing all of the calls and charges from a specified time period.


To browse for additional information about a call, with your mouse cursor point at the More Info icon next to the required xDR. A dialog window displaying the following information appears:


This information is available for the following IP Centrex calls:

How to revert a transaction

If you want to reverse any type of transaction (voice calls, credits / adjustments, etc.), complete the following steps:

  1. Select the xDRs you want to reverse.
  2. Click the Revert button.
  3. In the Revert dialog box define the following:
  4. Click Revert.

Note that the Amount field in the Revert dialog box is inactive if you select multiple xDRs in step 1 – the transaction amount in this case is always equal to the sum of all selected xDRs amounts.



In case you want to reverse a transaction as if it never happened, use the Hide original and correction xDRs from end user option in step 3.  Therefore, both the original and correction xDRs will be given the  Hidden xDR icon in the Hidden column and end users will neither see these xDRs in their invoices, nor on self-care interfaces or in statistics.


This option is only available when the reverse transaction amount is equal to the original transaction(s) amount and all of the transaction xDRs are included in the open billing period or an invoice that is under review.


Note that you must be very careful when applying Hide original and correction xDRs from end user – once an xDR becomes hidden, it’s not possible to reverse it. So if you reverse a transaction by mistake and mark it as hidden, you can only correct this by manually charging for the transaction amount or by importing an analogous xDR.


How to view information in totals by service

If you want to view information (charged quantity and amounts due) for all of the services, click the Show Totals by Services button.


How to view all xDRs for a session with several rating period

Roaming identification in xDRs

For customer and administrator convenience, PortaBilling® distinguishes between xDRs produced for roaming services and those produced for home network service usage. Thus, if a customer has been using the services while roaming, their xDRs are displayed as a separate Roaming group in the xDR browser. Depending on whether the call / message was incoming or outgoing, the name of the country and carrier visited are displayed next to the phone number in the From or To columns, respectively.



To browse for additional information about the roaming country and carrier, point to the More Info icon with your mouse cursor. A dialog window displaying the following information appears:
