Pre Processing XSL Configuration

Pre Processing XSL configuration can be used to transform request message before processing it. Click the ellipses button against the property to configure the properties.

Refer to the Pre/Post Processing XSL Configuration section in the Common Configurations page for details regarding Pre Processing XSL configuration and Post Processing XSL configuration (below).

Post Processing XSL Configuration 

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

Process Message Based on Property

The property helps components to skip certain messages from processing.

Refer to the Process Message Based On a Property section in the Common Configurations page.

Threadpool Configuration

 This property is used when there is a need to process messages in parallel within the component, still maintaining the sequence from the external perspective. 

Refer to the Threadpool Configuration section in the Common Configurations page.



ISO20022Validator does two kinds of validation:

  • Schema Validation: The component first validates the incoming XML message against respective schemas defined by ISO20022. These schemas are bundled with the installer and are present in %FIORANO_HOME%\xml-catalog\fiorano\swift\iso20022.
  • Data Validation: Validation is performed on the data according to the Rules and Guidelines defined in Message Definition Report, also issued by ISO20022.

Input and Output

Sample Input

An XML instance of message type camt.052.001.02


Output of the component is the same as the input if the incoming message passes all of the validation criteria.

An exception message with a reason for the failure of validation is sent on the ON_EXCEPTION port if the validation fails.
