Number Type Rejects BigDecimal Data in Infographics

When attempting to add a BigDecimal data type to an infographic field that accepts Number type data, the BigDecimal value is rejected and the following error is displayed:

Invalid DataSeries type BigDecimalValueType{precision=0, scale=-1} not applicable to INTEGER, BIG_INTEGER, FLOAT, BIG_DECIMAL

Cause

This is a known bug that affects Datameer 5.9.4, but other versions might be affected too.
