A deposit transaction is stored when the user execute a job process using as balance the quotation returned first by the processing service for the selected parameters (it implies that the wps provider implemented the quotation mode). Deposit transactions can be active or closed. An active deposit is accounted when calculating your account balance (covering the possible debit transactions associated to the same process). A closed deposit is not accounted when calculating your account balance (but does not cover anymore the possible debit transactions associated to the same process). A deposit is automatically set from active to closed when the job process is failed or when the job is succeeded with at least one transaction recorded from the wps provider. Terms

  • Credit: amount credited to the account
  • Accounted Debit (+real cost): amount debited from the account corresponding to a transaction ; real cost shown if different from debit, but not debited (this may vary with on accounting governance)
  • Not Accounted Debit: amount corresponding to the records received from the provider for this transaction, but not debited from the account, as the transaction is not completed
  • Active Deposit: Deposit temporarily debited from the account (until the transaction is completed)
  • Closed Deposit: Deposit value, not debited anymore, informational only Transaction policy

The current policy for a wps job process accounting is that the total amount debited to the user corresponds to the real usage of the wps process and cannot be greather than the estimated deposit.
