Error description

  • STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    
    1. Create a stub with has no guard condition but multiple guards
    2. The stub is configured to append a repeating value to a tag
    3. Send an event with the repeating elements to the stub
    
    EXPECTED RESULTS
    
    The repeating elements are tagged correctly
    
    
    ACTUAL RESULTS
    
    If the stub event is the first in the list, the repeated tagging
    works correctly.
    The tag contains:
    
    {One, Two, Three, Four}
    
    If the stub event follows another that has a guard condition,
    the tagging results in:
    
    {, One, Two, Three, Four}
    
    There is an additional empty value at the start of the tag
    
    WORKAROUND:
    None
