Parse XML maps numeric value to decimal property incorrectly



An external SOAP request is called. The SOAP XML contains a Pega Decision Strategy Manager (DSM) interaction ID which is a long numeric value. This XML is passed to a Parse XML to extract the interaction ID and perform DSM related tasks with the ID
The Parse XML maps the interaction ID to a decimal property. After mapping, the decimal value looses precision and hence is set to an incorrect numeric value.
