Attempt to transfer a customer account to another Vendor fails with the error:

Parallels Operations Automation error #error_code # 1, extype_id # 1, module_id #AccountManager, The operation on resource 'f6****54-0**3-42**-*e59-*****ef5672*' is not allowed.

The account's vendor has already been changed on OA side, however, the account is still under the initial reseller on BA side.

The following error message can be seen in /var/log/pa/billing.log on BA Application server (on initial transfer attempt):

The subscription which belongs to the account is not synchronized with the service plan - there are obsolete resources which are not present in the service plan.

The root cause of the situation is Software Related Issue PBA-83477 'Account is transferred to new vendor in OA but not in BA'


In order to workaround the issue, follow the next steps:

  1. Synchronize the subscription: PCP > Billing > Operation > Customers > Subscription > Synchronize > check 'Remove obsolete resource(s)' > Synchronize
  2. Execute API-method pem.changeAccountOwner to change the vendor on OA side back to initial
  3. Transfer the account from BA control panel

Contact your Technical Account Manager or Pooled Technical Associate Team ( in order to trace the current status of #PBA-83477. Fix is planned to be included in one of the future product updates.
