Unfortunately, I am not sure if I am following along here. The external system which is invoking the service via http post is passing along an xml document as the payload information. In order for me to receive the xml and parse through it, I need to setup my steps in the service which is being called. currently, I have it set such that the input variable is a string called “xmldata” and the first step is xmlStringToXMLNode, where I am passing the input variable xmldata to be converted to an xml node. Now is there anything from the publisher’s side that needs to be done to send the data in any particular format? And where exactly does the “$xmldata” play a role? on my side (the IS side) or the publisher’s side (The one invoking the service).
Thanks for your patience and assistance. Here is a sample of a portion of the xml that would be sent by the external system.
