This step generates XML format using text, variables and globals.


  • mainNodeName-- Main node name
  • xmlNodeData-- Xml node information
  • varGlobalToStoreValue-- Variable/Global to store the xml 



  • True – step executed successfully
  • False – step failed to execute 






Let’s build and execute the “generateXMLDef” example.          

  • Create a new definition called “generateXMLDef” 
  • Select the definition and click the “design” button
  • Drag a “generateXML” step from the toolbox
  • Connect the dots between the start and “generateXML” step
  • Define a variable/global to store the result after execution
  • Click on the “generateXML” step to configure its “Settings” properties. Provide a name to the step. Provide a name for main XML node. Click on the button to provide XML node information. Provide a variable/global to store the result. 
  • Click on the button to provide the XML node information.
  • The “Logging” setting configuration is necessary for documentation and also measure the workflow progress and the percent complete. This is acheived by configuring the step state and percent fields individually as shown in the images below. Configure the “Logging” using the following properties.
  • Save the process definition, create a new process instance and execute. Render the process instance. Click on the process step to view the properties. The step should generate XML using given data and store it result variable or global.
