API Element Property Value XML

I am setting up a case where I am sending a request that receives a response object in XML.

I am then calling verify element property value using the request; element; value;

I am receiving the error below which leads me to believe its trying to read the response as JSON when it should read as XML.

Can anyone help me understand how to get this to read the response correctly and verify the element?

Error: Test Cases/Partner API/getAnpProvisioningStatus FAILED because (of) Unable to verify element property value (Root cause: groovy.json.JsonException: Unable to determine the current character, it is not a string, number, array, or object

The current character read is ‘<’ with an int value of 60

Unable to determine the current character, it is not a string, number, array, or object

line number 1

index number 0

<?xml version='1.0' standalone='yes'?>

^)

Wyatt,

Could you provide more information on the request setting? Screenshot with the header setting and the response will be helpful to investigate the case.

I can not provide the response however I can verify the response is valid XML content that starts with:

<?xml version='1.0' standalone='yes'?>
