Using XML to lookup data

Updated 2 weeks ago by Nandini

 Here’s an example that uses XML format to display the botanical name of a plant.

  1. Create a remote lookup field called Plant
  2. In the URL field, add the API link such as this sample one from W3schools.
  3. Choose GET as the request type.
  4. In the field What kind of data are you working with?, choose XML
  1. In XML path of value in result enter ./PLANT/BOTANICAL
  2. In the field What kind of data are you working with?, choose XML
  3. In the field How should the result be chosen?, choose Select a value from the dropdown and click Done.

 

Here’s how it will function in a live form.
