Use file content instead of textbox for Analytic APP


I have an Analytic APP where I want to update the raw XML for a SELECT tool - but I want to bring in the content of an .xml file rather than using a multi-line textbox that the user would need to interact with. How can I do this? (copying and pasting the xml into the multi-line textbox achieves the desired outcome)



Have you tried bringing the xml into the app with an input tool and then using a file browse tool so that the end user will just have to upload a file to replace?


Thanks for the idea @mmenth.


I'm hoping for a more elegant solution that wouldn't require any intervention though.
