14.3 XML

Ascolog Insight is delivered with a sample plug-in that converts logs to XML. Select the columns you want to convert and save in the XML file and add them to the Record definition list.

Do not add separators including carriage returns (CR) and line feeds (LF) to the Record definition list. This will create XML files that consist of only one line and that do not make a lot of sense.

When a record definition specifies that the data from the columns UID and TYPE shall be converted Ascolog Insight will create the XML tags <UID> and <TYPE> and the data of these columns will be encompassed by these tags as shown in example Exporting the columns UID and TYPE to XML.

<ASCOLOG_XML>
<record><UID>423</UID><TYPE>3</TYPE></record>
<record><UID>424</UID><TYPE>2</TYPE></record>
