More about Parse XML rules

Updated on April 6, 2022

Where referenced

Parse XML rules are frequently used with Web services and so are often referenced in Connect SOAP, Connect dotNet, Service SOAP, and Service dotNet rules. However, you can reference Parse XML rules in other types of service and connector rules.

To execute a Parse XML rule in an activity, use the Apply-Parse-XML method.


Although the first key part of this rule is known as the Namespace, it does not conform to any official XML namespace, but serves a similar function, to partition the set of possible parsing rules to avoid accidental name collisions.

Additional documentation

For more information about XML parsing, see How to parse an XML document on the Pega Community.

Monitoring performance

Through changes to the prconfig.xml file or dynamic system settings, you can be alerted to unusually long Parse XML executions as PEGA0011 alerts.

Viewing the Java code of a rule

Click ActionsView Java to view the generated Java of a rule. You can use the Java code to debug your application or to examine how rules are implemented.
