XML Attribute lookups can be used to detect metadata attributes of events. This metadata is stored in XML format. This allows policy triggers to access event information that is not accessible through any other trigger. Syntax summaries and brief examples are given below.
What Is XML Metadata?
XML metadata contains ancillary information about the item itself (for example, when a file was created or an x-header inserted into an Internet Mail).
This XML metadata is not the same as the event metadata stored by CA Data Protection on the CMS. This event metadata contains details about about the CA Data Protection event (for example, the event capture date, participants, and trigger details).
For more information please refer to the xmlattr section in the CA Data Protection Product documentation
