Specific Action  <specific_action> 

Within an initial AA request the AF may use the Specific-Action AVP to request specific actions from the server at the bearer events and to limit the contact to such bearer events where specific action is required. If the Specific-Action AVP is omitted within the initial AA request, no notification of any of the events defined below is requested.

DESCRIPTION
charging_correlation_exchange Within a RAR, this value shall be used when the server reports the access network charging identifier to the AF. The Access-Network-Charging-Identifier AVP shall be included within the request. In the AAR, this value indicates that the AF requests the server to provide the access network charging identifier to the AF for each authorized flow, when the
indication_of_loss_of_bearer Within a RAR, this value shall be used when the server reports a loss of a bearer (e.g. in the case of GPRS PDP context bandwidth modification to 0 kbit) to the AF. The SDFs that are deactivated as a consequence of this loss of bearer shall be provided within the Flows AVP. In the AAR, this value indicates that the AF requests the server to provide a
indication_of_recovery_of_bearer Within a RAR, this value shall be used when the server reports a recovery of a bearer (e.g. in the case of GPRS, PDP context bandwidth modification from 0 kbit to another value) to the AF. The SDFs that are re-activated as a consequence of the recovery of bearer shall be provided within the Flows AVP. In the AAR, this value indicates that the AF requests the
indication_of_release_of_bearer Within a RAR, this value shall be used when the server reports the release of a bearer (e.g. PDP context removal for GPRS) to the AF. The SDFs that are deactivated as a consequence of this release of bearer shall be provided within the Flows AVP. In the AAR, this value indicates that the AF requests the server to provide a notification at the removal of a
ip_can_change This value shall be used in RAR command by the PCRF to indicate a change in the IP-CAN type or RAT type (if the IP-CAN type is GPRS). When used in an AAR command, this value indicates that the AF is requesting subscription to IP-CAN change and RAT change notification. When used in RAR it indicates that the PCRF generated the request because of an IP-CAN
indication_of_out_of_credit Within a RAR, this value shall be used when the PCRF reports to the AF that SDFs have run out of credit, and that the termination action indicated by the corresponding Final-Unit-Action AVP applies (3GPP TS 32.240 [23] and 3GPP TS 32.299 [24). The SDFs that are impacted as a consequence of the out of credit condition shall be provided within the Flows AVP. In
indication_of_successful_resources_allocation Within a RAR, this value shall be used by the PCRF to indicate that the resources requested for particular service information have been successfully allocated. The SDFs corresponding to the resources successfully allocated shall be provided within the Flows AVP.
indication_of_failed_resources_allocation Within a RAR, this value shall be used by the PCRF to indicate that the resources requested for a particular service information cannot be successfully allocated. The SDFs corresponding to the resources that could not be allocated shall be provided within the Flows AVP.
indication_of_limited_pcc_deployment Within a RAR, this value shall be used when the server reports the limited PCC deployment (i.e. dynamically allocated resources are not applicable) as specified at Annex L in 3GPP TS 23.203 [2] to the AF. In the AAR, this value indicates that the AF requests the server to provide a notification for the limited PCC deployment. Applicable to fu
usage_report Only applicable for sponsored data connectivity. In the RA-Request (RAR), this value shall be used by the PCRF to report accumulated usage volume. In the AA-Request (AAR), this value indicates that the AF requests PCRF to report accumulated usage volume when it reaches the threshold.
