Number Of Dials Extracted In Message Sent To Mobile Workforce Management (MWM) from Meter Data Management (MDM) or Customer to Meter Base (C2M) Contains a Decimal Point

When an activity is initiated with activity type configured with "MDM Data Retriever" = D2-ProMDMDtl then the Number of Dials (i.e. total of Left and Right) extracted in Outbound message sent to MWM contains a decimal point.

(Then MWM rejects request because of the decimal point.)

Data Retriever Script D2-ProMDMDtl invokes D2-RetReaDtl script which contains the "math" to calculate the contents of this field:

 move "number(D1-Register/numberOfDigitsLeft) + number(D1-Register/numberOfDigitsRight)" to "parm/readingDetails/readingDetailsList[last()]/numberOfDials";

It seems like this element ends up being a number with a decimal point after this step instead of a string.

MWM error 11017/11017


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1) Set up SP, IE, Device, DC with Scalar MC having 5 digits left and 3 digits right.
2) For Extendable Lookup "D1-FieldTaskType" for Field Task "Cut for NonPayment" make sure MDM Data Retriever is set to "Service Order - Provide MDM Details" which is D2-ProMDMDtl.
3) Create an Activity related to SP/Device above with Activity Type "Field Activity" and Field Task Type of "Cut for Non Payment"
4) The Activity will Create a Communication Outbound.
5) In the Send Detail of Outbound Communication, notice Number of Dials is "8.0":

The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users cannot send these messages to MWM successfully without tedious manual intervention.
