P6 Web Services CopyWBSFromTemplate Service Returns Parent Object Id Instead of the Newly Created WBS Object Id (Doc ID 2475825.1)

When trying to copy a WBS using the CopyWBSFromTemplate service, the parent Object Id is returned in the response message instead of the new WBS Object Id. The CopyWBSFromTemplate service is available for the ProjectService and the WBSService. When using this service the WBS Code and the WBS Name cannot be specified when copying the WBS, so there is no easy way to find the new WBS so that it can be edited. The expected behavior would be that the Object Id of the top node of the copied WBS be returned.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a CopyWBSFromTemplate request using the Project service or the WBS service.

2. View the response and it will contain the Object Id specified in the request instead of the Object Id of the new WBS.
