Using rating requests, you can create consumption items in SAP Convergent Invoicing based on a cycle. This is useful, for example, if you want to charge customers for recurring charges using consumption items, or if you want to ensure that SAP Convergent Charging activates contracts on a regular basis.

You generate rating requests using a new mass activity (transaction FKKBIX_CYC_MA).
