How to create empty nodes in source schema in biztalk? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi All,

    I have map in which source schema is SQL based, and Destination schema is EDI file.

    Something is changed in our Upstream system due to which if data is not present empty nodes are not getting created in xml.

    which is causing failures in biztalk as mandatory element missing.

    Since empty tag is also not coming in xml input record, default value given in map is also not mapped.

    Let me know how to create empty tags in input XML?

    Here we can use xslt to create output if tag is not there. but we are not sure which element will be missing going forward so that we can mention it in XSLT Script.

    is there any work around for this.

    Any help will be really appreacited.

  • A bit of experimentation using "Logical Existence", "Not" and "Value Mapping" should provide the functionality you need.
