Outbound Communication Response Error - Via FCS Meter Reads Upload Process

IMDs w/ Reader Remarks and a No Read condition code, such that a Measurement will not get created when the IMD is finalized, still update Most Recent Msrmt Date/Time even without a Measurement. This results in a future search in Activity looking for measurement at that same time and then failing when it doesn't find one.

This results in a problem and has downstream effects. In the customer's case, the Device Event when processed will trigger a Service Investigation which results in a Field Activity being created. The Field Activity is one that uses script D1-RetReaDtl which calls D2-RetReaDtl to retrieve the most recent measurement. The script fails because it tries to find a measurement that matches the Most Recent Measurement Date/Time but that measurement does not exist.

The measurement date times on the Measuring Component should only be updated if a Measurement was created at that time.

MC id 900028207869
Note at the beginning of the test there are measurements through standard time 06/09/2022 11:00 PM for this MC

1) Upload to upload a Reader Remark on an IMD and no reading.
Specifically this means <deviceEventTypes> section is populated with at least one Reader Remark and the IMD enQty is 0 and the ccondion is code 100500 which is a No Read Condition "No Read - Field"

Sample IMD upload:

Using D1-InitialLoadIMDScalar.
2) Finalize the above IMD:
-IMD was finalized as expected.
-No Measurement was created due to the "No Read - Field" condition code used.

-Device Event was created for the Reader Remark

3) Checking Most Recent Measurement Date/Time:
Query: select most_recent_msrmt_dttm from D1_MEASR_COMP where MEASR_COMP_ID = '900028207869';
Result: 06/19/2022 11:00 PM
