Primo VE: Record elements tag field in file splitter of generic XML discovery import profiles to support X-Path
In discovery import profiles for Primo VE, generic XML profiles do not currently support X-Path within the Record elements tag of the file splitter.
This means that XML source files which contain a multi-layered structure within records are not accepted by Primo VE on import. The file then has to be manually transformed to remove the extra layer before importing.
For example, a XML file generated from one of our external systems pulls in data for some fields from additional tables to the bulk of the record, adding an extra layer to the record e.g.
root element: <table>
record element: <tuple>
path to most elements in record: tuple/atom
some field have extra layer in following format: tuple/table/tuple/atom
It would be beneficial if the record elements tag could support X-Path, in a similar way to the identifier tag and location of deleted status fields within the file splitter.
