    For your purpose you have extract the paylod first.

    e.g use XPath with /soapenv:Envelope/soapenv:Body/child::* and you get your soap operation and this operation you can transform to JSON.

    Hi vgdarur,


    DTZ's methodology is correct, you will need to extract the fragment of XML that you wish to translate to JSON from the original XML payload and then convert that fragment, rather than the entire message.  The policy logic that would allow you to do this would look something like this:


    • XPath assertion on SOAP message
      • extract XML for desired element using XPath statement
      • save result to variable
    • JSON transformation on variable from XPath assertion


    Let us know if that solves your problem, or if you're looking for something more/different.
