Update XML Value Based On Previous Value

Hello,

I am trying to update the attached xml file. On line 66 and 193 of the xml file is an ID number. I want to search for a specific ID number and then update the Status value that belongs to that ID number on lines 184 and 303 respectively. So, for this example if the ID equaled V-46473 then I would want to update line 184.

In Automation Anywhere I was able to update it using this XPath Expression,
//VULN/STIG_DATA[ATTRIBUTE_DATA = “vVul”]/…/STATUS
This didn’t work in UiPath for me. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Kindly note:
was a rough prototype
currently is not saving the file
ensure: System.XML.XPath is imported to the namespaces (down, right to the variable panels)

Let us know your further open questions on it

Thanks, this helped a lot. I am able to modify and save what I need now.
