Parse XML rules

Updated on April 6, 2022

Use Parse XML rules with services and connectors to map data from an XML text message into clipboard property values. Each Parse XML rule contains an array of parsing instructions that Pega Platform uses to interpret an incoming XML document or message.

The incoming message might arrive using an email protocol or by SOAP over HTTP protocol. The message might be a request for service or a reply from a connector.


Use the Application Explorer to access parse XML rules that apply to the work types in your application. Use the Records Explorer to list all parse XML rules available to you.


If you have a Document Type Definition (DTD) or XML Schema (XSD) file for the XML documents to be parsed by a Parse XML rule, you can create classes and properties and a starter Parse XML rule corresponding to the XML definition automatically by using a wizard. See About the Connector and Metadata wizard .


Parse XML rules are instances of the Rule-Parse-XML class. They belong to the Integration-Mapping category.
