Xpath Match by ChildNode

Hi, I'm trying to dev a test to assert if API response returns the same child nodes that I'm looking for. Since the info that I'm looking for doesn't return as value but child nodes, I need to match them with element names.

 

 

<Root> <Child1Parameters>...</Child1Parameters> <Child2Parameters>...</Child2Parameters> <Child3Parameters>...</Child3Parameters> <Child4Parameters>...</Child4Parameters> </Root>

So as in the example, I want to check if Root element has "Child1Parameters", "Child2Parameters", "Child3Parameters" and "Child4Parameters" nodes.

 

Do you know how can I do this?

Is it a SOAP request? If so, try using schema validation assertion.

Re: Xpath Match by ChildNode

am I misunderstanding?  the way I read this it sounds like you are asking to just assert the presence of the XML instance's elements or do you mean something different?

 

if you just need to assert the presence of specific tags within the response, wouldn't an existence check be what you need?

if this helped answer the post, could you please mark it as 'solved'? Also if you consider whether the title of your post is relevant? Perhaps if the post is solved, it might make sense to update the Subject header field of the post to something more descriptive? This will help people when searching for problems. Ta
