Externalize Parameters: how to fetch value dynamically

Hi Experts

I have Timer start event(i harcoded payload for testing)to HCI to SFTP scenario where i want to put the receiver credential name dynamically from the incoming payload.

My incoming structure is:


and i want to pick the receiver credential name from <hedfield>sftpuser1</hedfield> of header field in the payload so i changed the below external parameter as follows.

Receiver channel external parameter

But everytime i set {{Receiver_credential_name_2}} as //header/hedfield it resets the value at runtime to my old saved credential that i used in past.

Am i not doing it the correct way. Please help.

    Hi Morten

    This is where you are suggesting camel parameters, but for private key alias and credentials i coudnt see anything matching hence a new question

    Hi Naina,

    In the externalized parameters tab there is a save button you should click on it in order to save the new value.

    But I don't know if the value could accept XPath expressions or not.

    Please let us know if you solve your problem.

    Best regards,
    Mohamed Amine.

    Hi Naina,

    I tried the way like you said. But it does not work. Could you provide more details,like the iFlow details, you create the new header in which component or script etc. ?

    Thanks very much

    Best Regards
