What are the relations between Supported-Vendor-Id AVP, Auth-Application-Id AVP and Vendor-Specific-Application-Id AVP

+5 votes

Also what are the rules for populating those AVPs (in the RFC it is not clear when to use each one of the option)?

Hi ,
Please refer the section 5.3.6, 6.8,*6.9 and 6.11 from RFC - 6733.
Which does give the information about the three AVPs and how to use that.
Section 6.11 shows that Vendor-Specific-Application-Id AVP is a grouped AVP which contain Auth-Application-Id and Acct-Application-Id. It has mentioned how to use both the AVPs with Vendor-Specific-Application-Id.

I saw Capabilities-Exchange-Request and Capabilities-Exchange-Answer messages. In CER message there are two places where Vendor-Id AVP is present, one as an independent AVP and the other one as part of Vendor-Specific-Application-Id AVP. If both of them are present in request message then both will be having same value or can hold different values.

I gone through the RFC4006 but didnt get the context of below paragraph

   Certain applications require multiple credit-control sub-sessions.
   These applications would send messages with a constant Session-Id
   AVP, but with a different CC-Sub-Session-Id AVP.  If several credit
   sub-sessions will be used, all sub-sessions MUST be closed separately
   before the main session is closed so that units per sub-session may
   be reported.  The absence of this AVP implies that no sub-sessions
   are in use.

But here my question is
1. What could be the types of Multiple credit-ontrol Sub-session?
2. How can we include different cc-sub-session-ID for each sub-session, please give me an example with message structure using CCR message.
