Thread: Question about the Web Services Lookup component

    Default Question about the Web Services Lookup component

    Howdy,

    Just a quick question about the web services lookup component... if multiple results are returned, will the component treat the results like other lookups/joins do and turn the one input row into multiple output rows, one for each join? Or does a unique value need to be returned?

    Thanks.

    That depends on the settings :
    - whether or not you specified an element to loop over
    - whether or not you return the reply as a blob of XML

    It's that last thing I usually recommend. Web Services Lookup is not a very good XML parser. And since people absolutely refuse to do things the easy way in web services (it's against the rules), you need a step like "Get Data From XML" to do it.
