This custom activity is helpful for cases when the required robot parameters change frequently and the real-time data is available in the XML file.
If the automation involves configurations which may vary on a day to day basis then it would be a bit tedious to change the parameters in Orchestrator frequently.
Using this activity the required parameters can be fetched at runtime if the config parametrs are available in XML file.
For instance for an automation that will move a file from the source to a final destination and the path changes every day, the parameters need to be updated accordingly.
If the path can be obtained from the source application in XML file format, then this file can be read during runtime and the config can be assigned accordingly.
This activity can also be used just to check if specific data exists in the XML file or not. If the specified XPath data exists then the output will be TRUE, if the data does not exist then the output will be FALSE.
Detailed explanation of parameters and examples of how to use this activity can be found in the attached manual.
