Hi @Pooja2 !
Would you mind sharing your workflow (xaml) and data (xml file) ? (create dummy data if you have sensitive ones)


<wd:data xmlns:wd=“URL”>
<wd:student data wd:Descriptor=“Sample1”>
<wd:ID wd:type=“WID”>7689999jgjg</wd:ID>
<wd:ID wd:type=“ID”>768</wd:ID>
</wd:student data>

this kind of xml file i have.

Thanks !
And your xaml ?

I am trying with deserialize activity. where getting data in the above format.
now i want each value.

What is the wanted data.

I want candidate ID from this.

When I use deserialize activity I get an error of the xml format.
The format of the xml seems to be not valid.
Checked also with an xml validator:

the xml is defining namespaces. Have a look below on an introduction on how to handle it:
