Specifying an element attribute containing a colon not possible

Former Member

Hello everybody

Might be a stupid question... I'm trying to define a datatype in XI (3.0 SP16) integration repository. This datatype has one root element and some child elements. The root element requires some attributes, one named "xmlns:xsi". Unfortunately this is not accepted from XI! The colon is not accepted.

So how do I specify such attributes in XI datatype elements?!?

Thanks for some guidance / help!

Kind regards,

if you have an XSD of your data type

you can import it as <b>external definition</b>

and try using this one
