Use XSL Templates to Transform Action Responses

You can transform the action responses returned by File System Connector using XSL templates. You must write your own XSL templates and save them with either an .xsl or .tmpl file extension.

After creating the templates, you must configure File System Connector to use them, and then apply them to the relevant actions.

To enable XSL transformations

  1. Ensure that the autnxslt library is located in the same directory as your configuration file. If the library is not included in your installation, you can obtain it from HPE Support.
  2. Open the File System Connector configuration file in a text editor.
  3. In the [Server] section, ensure that the XSLTemplates parameter is set to true.

    Caution: If XSLTemplates is set to true and the autnxslt library is not present in the same directory as the configuration file, the server will not start.

  4. (Optional) In the [Paths] section, set the TemplateDirectory parameter to the path to the directory that contains your XSL templates. The default directory is acitemplates.
  5. Save and close the configuration file.
  6. Restart File System Connector for your changes to take effect.
