A runtime error is generated if the XML importer cannot execute the instructions encoded in the XML document. By default, the importer skips any element (or subelement) containing an error. It continues with the next element and generates an error report at the end.

There are two ways to avoid the runtime error:

  • --verify: Without importing the ICIM/XML document, run the XML to see if it will be validated by the parser.

  • --exit-on-error: By default, objects will be imported as they are interpreted from the XML document and any invalid objects will be identified in a summary file. Use this command option to quit the import process when the adapter detects an error.


    Any objects imported before the error was detected will remain in the repository.
