  • Set transformation result as

Post Processing XSL Configuration

Post Processing XSL configuration can be used to transform response message before sending it to the output port.


As mentioned in the above section, refer to the Pre/Post Processing XSL Configuration section under the Common Configurations topic for details regarding XSL configuration.

Process Message Based on Property

The property helps components to skip certain messages from processing.


Refer the Process Message Based On a Property section under the Common Configurations topic.

Validate Input

If this attribute is enabled, the service tries to validate the input received. If disabled, service will not validate the input. For more details, refer Validate Input section section under Interaction Configurations in Common Configurations page.

Click the Threadpool Configuration ellipsis  button to configure the Threadpool Configuration properties.

Enable Thread Pool

Enable this option to configure the properties that appear as below.

Pool Size
