I needed to send orders in XML format over webservice calls and I soon realized that although there were some resources on how you can do that with JSON text structures, there weren’t many containing XML structures.
Let’s have a look how I achieved this in a few simple steps below:
In my context I am logging the XML message that I am sending into a Blob field of an integration log table.
Step1 – I created the relevant fields here:
Step 2 – I also created a very simple XMLPort, feel free to create one suitable to your needs.
Step 3 – Now what we need is to have two functions that would:
3.1 Stream the contents of a message into our blob field, which is exactly what the function below does
3.2 Stream the contents of our blob field into a text variable, exemplified in the ReadXML2Text procedure below
Step4 – Sending the XML message to our destination with Http Post.
We then send the xml text variable to a codeunit were we are using the HTTPContent.writefrom function
