The "Get a Probe Configuration" REST Call returns empty XML/Json at every second consecutive attempt.
How do we correct this?

Environment:
UIM 8.XRobot < 7.90

Resolution:

robots must be updated to robot 7.90 or newer

You must add a special configuration key to the <controller> section of theĀ  robot.cfg on the robots which display this issue:
