Schedule with XML input item fails to work

If you create a schedule and select XML as the job configuration input type, BMC Atrium Orchestrator saves the value as a string instead of as an XML element. When the schedule starts the workflow on the grid, the workflow might fail because the input parameter is not processed correctly.

Workaround

Do not use XML as the job configuration input type in a schedule. If you need XML in the workflow, pass each element of the workflow in using separate string input parameters. Combine the input parameters into the required XML using a transform in an Assign activity
