Procedure documentation Adding XMLAnonymizerBean in the Module Processor  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


You use this module to anonymize XML elements and attributes by removing namespaces or namespace prefixes from the XML document of the main payload.

You can define a particular namespace prefix for each namespace. You can also change the encoding attribute of the XML declaration.

You can use the module in adapters that can be extended in the module processor.


Add the Module in the Processing Sequence

If the adapter comprises multiple modules, for information about the position of the module, see: Extending the Module Chain in the Module Processor

       Enter the module name AF_Modules/XMLAnonymizerBean.

       Select the Module Type Local Enterprise Bean.

The system proposes a module key.
