I'm have an api test which uses the 'read from file' step to get a valid soap request. In my web service call I have linked the envelope to the contents parameter of the file read step. What I'm finding is the request when it is send has converted the < & > signs to &gt; and &Lt;. Does anyone know how to convert the request back before sending or get the text in the right format. I think the output parameter of the read file is a string so I will probably need to add a before execute event on the web service call. Any ideas on how to overcome this would be appreciated.
