XML Serializer Nodes

XML Serializer nodes convert an XML document to text. You can use node properties to specify characteristics of the resulting text file, such as whether or not you want it to include an XML declaration, and whether or not to use pretty-print to format it.

Input Port

XML Serializer nodes have a single input port that you use to specify the XML to be converted to text. You can specify a default value, or the value can be dynamic (the output from another node in the XML pipeline, for example).

Output Ports

XML Serializer nodes have a single output port, used to specify what to do with the result of the transformation. You can

  • Use the Copy to URL property to write the output to a file system
  • Pipe the output to another node
  • Or both
