Qn1:The Reading Type in the Send Detail section of the Outbound Communication is not getting populated while initiating an On Demand Read (Scalar). This is required by Landis +Gyr HES Command Center for processing On Demand Read requests.
Qn2:How do I differentiate between the different Meter Parameters i.e. Kwh, Current, Voltage etc. for which I want to read the Meter 'On Demand'.

We are trying to test the ODR for sample Meters, there's no full fledged SOA middleware. We only want to see how C2M initiates the ODR for only specific Measuring Components. Seeing at the Request xml we understand that the Reading Type should contain the specific Measuring Component details for which the ODR is placed. But we do not know where to specify that for a particular Device we want only the 'kWh' Measuring Component through ODR command.

Please find the GetMeterReadings XML:


We are able to specify a Meter Serial Number for an ODR but where do we specific Measuring Component of that Meter for which we need an On Demand Read from the Meter.
