Scribe Insight Limitation – XML Source doesn’t support repeating sibling nodes


Recently we were evaluating Scribe Insight as our Integration tool for one of our clients. The requirement was to read an xml and create records in Dynamics 365 CE.

The basic structure was something like below, with Account as the parent tag and Payment, Assets, Consumer as repeating child nodes of Account i.e. 1 – n.

However, to our surprise when we started defining the same structure in the XML Component within Scribe Workbench we got the below error message à

—————————

XML Component

—————————

Repeating nodes are not supported for cousins, siblings, etc. Multiple repeating nodes must be related linearly to repeating nodes that already exist. Thus, a new repeating node must be a grandparent, parent, child, grandchild, etc., to an existing repeating node.

OK

Interestingly enough the same limitation doesn’t exist in Scribe Online. Had posted something similar few days’ back on that

As we wanted to go with something that works in On Premise setup we went ahead with SSIS Productivity Pack of KingswaySoft https://www.kingswaysoft.com/products/ssis-productivity-pack which had XML components that works perfectly well with this kind of schema or structure.

Hope it helps..
