The XML configuration screen is very similar to the pattern parser configuration screen. The primary difference between the two is that the XML configuration screen combines the sample log entry with the parser configuration.
To configure your XML parser you just need to replace the given XML sample data with the appropriate conversion specifier. As you do this the field value grid to the right of the sample log entry will be populated with the extracted data. This should give you a good idea of whether or not your sample log entry is being parsed correctly.
Note that XML elements which you are not interested in can be ignored. We recommend that you remove unnecessary elements from your XML parser configuration settings.
