You can run a workflow from the Orchestrator client to modify the XML that the Create a simple XML document workflow creates.


  • Verify that the user account you are logged in with has the necessary permissions to run XML workflows.

  • Verify that you created the c:/orchestrator folder at the root of the Orchestrator server system or set access rights to another folder.


  1. Click the Workflows view in the Orchestrator client.
  2. In the workflows hierarchical list, open Library > XML > Samples XML (Simple) to navigate to the Modify XML document workflow.
  3. Right-click the Modify XML document workflow and select Start workflow.
  4. Provide the input and output filepaths.
    1. Type the filepath to the XML document to modify.

      For example, c:/orchestrator/filename.xml.

    2. Type the filepath to the modified XML document.

      For example, c:/orchestrator/filename.xml.


    If you type the same filepath in both fields, the workflow overwrites the original file with the modified file. If you type an output filepath to a file that does not exist, the workflow creates a modified file.

  5. Click Submit to run the workflow.


The workflow searches for an element and modifies the entry where the element is found.
