RunSerializer

RunSerializer

The
RunSerializer
action runs a Serializer as a subcomponent of a Parser, Mapper, or Serializer. The output of the serializer is stored in a data holder.
The following table describes the properties of the
RunSerializer
action:
Property
Description
disabled
Determines whether the Script ignores the component and all of the child components. Use this property to test, debug, and modify a Script. You can choose one of the following options:
  • Selected. The Script ignores the component.
  • Cleared. The Script applies the component.
The default is cleared.
input
Defines a data holder that contains XML text on which the Serializer runs.
The data holder must have a simple data type such as
xs:string
. The value of the string can be XML text of any complexity. For more information about how to run a Serializer on a data holder that has a complex type, see EmbeddedSerializer.
If you omit this property, the Serializer uses the data holders available in the scope of the action. For example, if the action is nested in a Parser, the Serializer runs on the output of the parser. If the action is within a
Group
, it runs on the output of the
Group
.
name
A descriptive label for the component. This label appears in the log file and the
Events
view. Use the
name
property to identify the component that caused the event.
on_fail
The action to take if the component fails. You can choose one of the following options:
  • Cleared. Take no action.
  • CustomLog. Write to the user log.
  • LogError. Write an error message to the engine log.
  • LogInfo. Write an information message to the engine log.
  • LogWarning. Write a warning message to the engine log.
  • NotifyFailure. Send a notification.
Default is cleared. For more information about handling component failures, see Failure Handling.
optional
Determines whether a component failure causes the parent component to fail. You can choose one of the following options:
  • Selected. Component failure does not cause the parent component to fail.
  • Cleared. Component failure causes the parent component to fail.
Default is cleared. For more information about component failure, see Failure Handling.
output
Defines a data holder for the Serializer output.
phase
Determines when the Script processes the component. You can choose one of the following options:
  • initial. The Script processes the component during the initial phase.
  • main. The Script processes the component during the main phase.
  • final. The Script processes the component during the final phase.
For more information, see How a Parser Searches for Anchors.
Default is main.
remark
A user-defined comment that describes the purpose or action of the component.
serializer
Defines a Serializer. Select the name of an existing
Serializer
component or define a
Serializer
at this location in the Script. For more information, see Serializer Component Reference.
