Cannot parse xsi:type using Parse XML



Unable to map xsi:type value to a Clipboard property.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a parse XML for an XML file which includes complex property types.
  2. Add type as an attribute with the correct mapping. 
  3. Run the Parse XML rule by passing XML as the input. It must map the value xsi:type to type attribute.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.

The customized SAX parser assumed that the type attribute was only available for type-substitution purpose and hence, did not retain the attribute value.


Apply HFix-43521.
