XML context item is handled as a string

When you assign a childless XML to a context item, BMC Atrium Orchestrator assumes that the context item value is contained in the text content only.

Example

Using the context item <element color="blue">sample</element>, BMC Atrium Orchestrator uses only the text of the XML, which is in this case the text sample.

However, if there are children, then the value is the entire XML document: <list><element color="blue">sample</element></list>.

Workaround

Use the embedded XML. If a childless node is required for processing, create the node using XSLT.
