Measurements Created by the Reconciliation Process do not Contain the Correct Combined Multiplier (Doc ID 2592487.1)

Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Reconciliation Initial Measurement Data (a Reconciliation IMD) is not creating Measurement records with the correct Combined Multiplier value.

For example if there is an Installation Constant in place which is not equal to 1, the software will save that installation constant as the Combined Multiplier value in the Measurement record when an Initial Load IMD is processed (note the multiplier can come from other sources other than the Installation Constant).  However, if a new Reconciliation IMD is spawned to replace an existing measurement that needs to be adjusted then in that case the Combined Multiplier in the resulting new measurement is saved with a value of 1 instead of the expected value.

It is expected that the Combined Multiplier would be calculated correctly even when the Measurement's source is a Reconciliation IMD.

Here is an example which would show this behavior:
1. Meter with Meter Multiplier = 1, Install Event with Installation Constant 350
2. Check existing regular measurements and see that the Combined Multiplier value is 350 on these Measurements.
3. Use Create/Override to replace an interim measurement - e.g. the second to last measurement.
4. A Reconciliation IMD is created for the subsequent measurement.
5. Resulting Measurement saved displays the Combined Multiplier as 1 instead of the expected value 350.
