How to Create XML Parameters - Standard Method

This task describes how to create an XML type parameter without viewing the properties of a Web Service call. This is the most common way of parameterizing values for most protocols and parameter types.

For Web Service Scripts, we recommend that you create parameters from within a Web Service Call, as described in XML Parameters.

To create a new XML parameter:

  1. Select Insert > New Parameter or select a constant value in the Script view and select Replace with a Parameter from the right-click menu. The Select or Create Parameter dialog box opens.

  2. In the Parameter name box, enter a name for the parameter.

  3. In the Parameter type box, select XML if it is not already selected.

  4. Click Properties to assign a value set now, or OK to close the dialog box and assign values later.
