Reads an XML file content and loads it into the step’s XML.

The Read XML step reads any XML file and loads its content. As a consequence, the content of the XML file is available as a source for other following steps.

Property Type Category Description
Comment String standard Describes the object comment to include in the documentation report.
This property generally contains an explanation about the object.
Is active boolean standard Defines whether the step is active.
Source JS expression standard Defines the path of the file to read.
This property is a JavaScript expression that is evaluated during the sequence execution and gives the path of the file to read.
This path is either absolute or relative to Convertigo environment. Relative paths starting with:

./ are relative to Convertigo workspace,
.// are relative to current project folder.
Output boolean expert Defines whether the XML generated by this step should be appended to the resulting XML.
Set this property to true to add the step’s resulting XML to the sequence’s output XML (default value for steps generating XML). Set this property to false to prevent the steps’s XML result to appear in the sequence’s output XML.
Setting this property to false does not prevent the step’s generated XML from being used as a source by other steps.
Replace ‘step’ element boolean expert Defines if the root ‘step’ element should be replaced by its content.
If ‘true’, the current Step will append the content of the file to the current Sequence, if ‘false’ the content is added to a ‘step’ element appended to the current Sequence.
