XML format is corrupted



The connector is invoked from an activity and the XML response displays in the Clipboard in the correct format. When setting the value of a property with the returned response, it is copied incorrectly. The XML format is corrupted.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create an activity and call the connector.
  2. Set an XML response to the String property or parameter and return the string value.

Root Cause

When the XML response is set to a string property using the property-set method, '$' is replaced with #DIALOGBODY string. Hence, the XML is corrupted.


As a local-change, add another '$' symbol to escape the '$' symbol in the XML response while setting it to a string.
