Version 24.2.8969


You can use the XML connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from XML and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from XML, you first must establish a connection to XML. Follow these steps to connect XML to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the XML row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • Connection Type - Select the connection type for your XLM resources. The default type is Auto.

    • Data Model - Select the data model that you want to use for parsing XML documents and generating the database metadata.

    • URI - Enter the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) for your XML resource location.

    • XPath - Enter the XML path that repeats at the same level within the XML document. You can specify multiple paths in a semicolon-separated list.

    • XML Format - Select the XML format that you want to use. The default format is XML.

  6. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  7. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
