    No, the ?. is real Groovy code, you don't need to change it.


    You will want to do something like this Groovy script, which acts like a Property Transfer step.


    import groovy.xml.StreamingMarkupBuilder

    String xml = testRunner.testCase.getTestStepByName('someEarlierTestStep')

    String innerXml = new XmlSlurper().parseText(xml)
     ?.find { b -> b.'@k' == 'zzz' }
     ?.with { node -> new StreamingMarkupBuilder().bindNode(node) } as String

    testRunner.testCase.setPropertyValue("InnerXML", innerXml)
