Multiple Element Instances
If a source XML file contains multiple values for a single element, all instances of that element are mapped to the target if the target supports multiple values. If you map to a target using a connector that does not support multiple values, only the first value is mapped.
The data browser within the integration platform will only show the first value for each element within a record. You can use EZscript to access the other values within the file.
For example, the following source XML file contains two name elements for a single customer element:
<customer>
<name>John Smith</name>
<name>Jane Smith</name>
<phone>(512) 555-1234</phone>
</customer>
Only the first name value will be written to a target that does not support multiple values. The first name value element will be visible in the data browser.
