The BMC Remedy AR System XML file type

The BMC Remedy AR System XML type for exported objects produces an XML document that is comparable to the BMC Remedy AR System definition file format. It follows the syntax of the XML specification 1.0. Specifically, every BMC Remedy AR System server object type has an associated structure definition in XML, which is specified by the XML Schema Definition (*.xsd) file. The *.xsd files reside on the BMC Remedy AR System server and are used to validate the BMC Remedy AR System server object definitions as valid XML.

Exported objects in XML format comprise an XML document, which might also be referred to as an instance of a particular XML schema definition for that object. If the XML schema definitions are loaded into an XML editor, someone who is knowledgeable about BMC Remedy AR System objects and XML can edit the XML document.

The XML schema definitions are designed to be similar to the definitions in the *.def files. You can include only one application inside an .xml file. For more information about the XML Schema definitions of BMC Remedy AR System objects, see the data structure information in XML transformation routines.


If you are exporting an object that contains XML text (for example, a form with a data visualization field that holds a flashboard), you must use a .def file. Because of an XML parsing limitation, exporting and importing XML text in BMC Remedy AR System XML files is not supported.
