Data Stitch Assign operation for Elements with Attributes by Jorge Herreria



You might noticed some times Data Stitch ASSIGN will volunteer or remove attributes from the targeted element… On this post I explain the behavior of ASSIGN operation for elements that have attributes and give some ideas for manage it.

There’s heavy XML, XSD, XPath lingo in this post. I’ll try to explain the lingo w/o going deep into it. I use the lingo with the intent that in case you search over the internet, you get more accurate hits 😉

Expect twisted humor and a two way conversation. A quote I like: "What if it works?" ~ me

For those in a hurry

If ASSIGN is copying the attributes along with the value of the element and you do not want the attributes, the use text() function. If ASSIGN is removing the existing attributes in the TO element, then you need to save off the attributes and then reassign them back.

Syntax used in this post

(TO XPath Expression).OPERATION(FROM XPath Expression)
