Need help understanding BMXAA2890E error and how to fix it (new reading should be greater than previous reading for a rollover meter).

    These meters were manually edited in the past. I am working on automating it. This is the error I get when I submit a meter reading via a REST call - 

    Here is the meter info -


    The previously entered reading was 7742. The current instrument reading is 8680. Since the rollover is 8000 hours, I have to POST a 680 reading. 

      {
        "_responsedata": {
          "Error": {
            "extendedError": {
              "moreInfo": {
                "href": "http:\/\/localhost\/maxrest\/oslc\/error\/messages\/BMXAA2890E"
              }
            },
            "reasonCode": "BMXAA2890E",
            "message": "BMXAA2890E - The new reading (680) entered on 1\/27\/21 7:21 AM should be greater than the previous reading (7,742.00) entered on 7\/20\/20 8:57 AM unless the new reading is a delta or meter 8000 HR on Location 1126 has a rollover value and Rollover is selected.",
            "statusCode": "400"
          }
        },
        "_responsemeta": {
          "status": "400"
        }
      


    POST Request

    https://maximosite:8443/maxrest/oslc/os/MXMETERDATA?lean=1



    JSON payload

    {
    		"_data":{
    			"siteid": "ENG",
    			"inspector": "OSI",
    			"location": 1126,
    			"metername": "8000 HR",
    			"newreading": 680,
    			"rollover": 8000,
    			"dorollover": "True",
    			"newreadingdate": "2021-01-27T07:21:00"
    		},
    		"_meta":{
    			"method": "PATCH",
    			"patchtype":"MERGE"
    		}
    	}


    I am able to manually edit the reading. I am wondering how this can be overcome with a REST call. 

    The Rollover? checkbox overwrote the 7742 value. The REST call with "dorollover": "True" doesn't seem to be cutting it. 



    How do I force a rollover just like we can in the GUI manually as shown above.

    Switching "dorollover": 1 instead of "dorollover": "True" seems to have done the trick. Please advise if you see any issues with my approach. Thanks!
