Automate end of day processing in billing

I attempted to run an End of Day for Business date 10-19 in UAT. The check failed with the following errors. After review of the errors I looked at the Processing Batches/ICLs. Within this screen there is a billed field that shows in progress. I attempted to force the billing to complete by selecting the More drop down and selecting actions, state management and turning the Billing to On. There is no billing option in the drop down. Billing is also not being performed by FTM so it should not be enabled. I have attached the logs and a screenshot of the Processing Batches/ICLs screen. I spoke with Minsung about the issue and he believes it is a configuration change that needs to be made.

    So it looks like the change being requested here is for FTM operators to be able to turn on/off the billing indicator. This makes sense. I have opened a User Story to allow operators to set the billing flag on/off.
