Unique Session ID in XSLT


Hello SND-ers,

Iu2019m having a little difficulty figuring out how to obtain the GUID or another unique session ID to place in field u2018SeqNumu2019. This XSLT creates a custom soap envelope around a payload and Iu2019m using this in an operation mapping in PI 7.1. I need to place a unique session ID in that u2018SeqNumu2019 field, but havenu2019t figured out how to do this yet. I didnu2019t know if there was a specific PI namespace that I could reference similar to the date/time example in the code below. Any help or guidance would be very much appreciated. Iu2019ve only included the top portion of the code to be clear in my request.

<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0"





<xsl:output method="xml" version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" indent="yes"/>

<xsl:variable name="Date" select="date:date()"/>

<xsl:variable name="Time" select="date:time()"/>

<! unique id for the session - this can be the existing session id or guid >

<xsl:param name="SeqNum" select=u201D<requestedvalue>u201D/>

I tried finding a reference library of some sort that may contain this information, but so far have been unsuccessful.



ps - as another side request, is it possible to pull the hostname or MAC address of the server to place that in the XSL as a dynamic value?
