Import Mapping Action

Last update: Edit

With the Import Mapping Action you can import the data stored in a XML or JSON document into domain model entities.

Input Properties

File document

The input variable can either be a string variable or a file document variable. The contents should have an XSD or JSON representation.

It the variable is a file document, it should be an object of entity ‘System.FileDocument’ or a specialization thereof.

Action Properties

Import mapping

The Import Mapping defines how to transform the XML or JSON string (or file document) to objects.


If the selected mapping requires a parameter, you can choose it here.

Range (if the mapping returns a list)

The range determines how many objects are mapped and returned.

Range Meaning
All Map and return all objects.
First Map and return only the first object. The result of the action will be a single object instead of a list.
Custom Map and return a given number of objects (limit). The limit is a microflow expression that should result in a number.

Validation properties

Validate against schema

Whether the import action should validate the incoming XML against the schema (XSD).

Setting this setting to yes can greatly decrease performance!

Default value: No

Output Properties

Store in variable

Choose whether to store the result of the import in a variable.


The type of the output variable.


The name for the variable that will hold the result of the import.
