Resolve term internal value from managed metadata

Resolves the internal values of a taxonomy field in this format: "WSSID;#VAL|GUID".

This is necessary because SharePoint workflow uses different formats to get and set managed metadata field values. When retrieving a managed metadata field value, SharePoint returns the format “VAL|GUID”. When setting a value, the format "WSSID;#VAL|GUID" is instead required, where WSSID is the ID of the associated row in the hidden taxonomy list.

Note: Activity creates WssId automatically for terms that are not yet referenced from the site.
