Summary

JSON inline schema option in REST adapter converts empty XML elements to JSON array instead of String making the REST API to fail

Content

Hi Experts,

I am calling an external REST API from OIC[version 20.1.3.0.0 (200401.0200.34935)] and has selected the JSON inline schema as the Request Payload.

Example of sample payload

{

    "pjOpenDate":"2020-06-20",

    "acClosingDate": "2020-06-20",

    "acOpeningDate": "2020-05-19",

    "Status": "Open",

    "projectedTakeoverDate":"2020-06-20",

    "location": {

        "id": "123456"

    }

}

 

In OIC mapper, it is a one to one mapping . This works fine when all the above fields have value. It fails in OIC layer when one of the value doesn't have any value and mapping creates an element like </pjOpenDate>.

Howdy, Stranger!
