FlexDeploy - XPath Plugin Guide

The FlexDeploy XPath plugin can parse XML and JSON inputs and output string values to the workflow. This allows FlexDeploy workflows to process JSON or XML and find the data that is required to complete complex workflows.

Supported Versions

JSON is parsed with JSONPath, a derivative of XPath for JSON.  It might be helpful to experiment with an online version of the tool, http://jsonpath.com/ if you aren't already familiar with it.

XML is parsed with the standard javax.xml.xpath classes.

Key Features

  • Easily configured.
  • In the case that multiple matches are returned, the values are returned in comma-separated format, surrounded with square brackets.
  • If no matches are returned, or the matched element is empty, FDP_Value will contain an empty string.
