SkipEmptyChild parameter Skips a Little bit too much (Doc ID 2749621.1)

A new parameter skipEmptyChild was added for which stops the iterator node if a sub field is missing 

However, it is noticed that the associated temporary storage field (e.g. IteratorInteger1) is not cleared if it is not found, it is skipped.

As such, if customer iterate over a record that has the optional field, and then another that does not then IteratorInteger1 is set incorrectly to the previous record.

So instead of just skipping, its needed to clear what's in there too.

Here is the Simple Object Access Protocol(SOAP) input:


So, customer pass two Iterator_Parents, but the second one is missing Iterator_Child1. 

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1) Define a Parent Array with Children as pictured. Map all 3 to incoming and outgoing session data.
2) Import Charge Plan(CPL), assign to an OpenServicesDevelopment (OSD) operation 
3) Trigger with the provided SOAP requests as an example (adjusting the operation as necessary)
