Uploads the XML string to the XFRACAS import queue. Returns an Integer that represents the import file's record ID.


Remarks: The XML file will be processed at the next scheduled import, or you can choose to process immediately all items in the import queue by using the ProcessXfracasImports method.

For the XML file to be imported successfully, you must have the "Manage Import" admin permission in the XFRACAS entity where you are uploading the file, and the XML file must be in the correct XFRACAS XML format. The XFRACAS 11 Import Business Logic (PDF) document provides a complete description of the XFRACAS format.

Syntax

.XFRACAS.ImportXfracasXmlString(entityID, importType, xmlString, fileTitle, fileDescription)

Parameters

entityID

Required. Integer. The ID number of the XFRACAS entity to import the data into.

importType

Required. The type of XFRACAS element (e.g., incident, problem, etc.) to import. Can be any XFRACASImportType constant.

xmlString

Required. String. The string consisting of the XML to import.

fileTitle

Required. String. The file title of the XML file byte array to import.

fileDescription

Required. String. A description of the XML data to import.


Example

VB.NET

 'Connect to a Synthesis enterprise repository. 
  Dim MyRepository As New Repository
  MyRepository.ConnectToSQLRepository("MyServer", "MyDatabase")
 
 'Define an XML string and populate it with the XML text. 
  Dim xmlString As String = Nothing
  ... 


 'Import the XML string into XFRACAS entity ID# 1. 
  Dim ImportXMLSystemID As Integer
  ImportXMLSystemID = MyRepository.XFRACAS.ImportXfracasXmlString(1, XFRACASImportType.Incident, xmlString, "XMLFileTitle", "XMLFileDescription")
