Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Administrator work center.
  2. Go to the General Settings work view.
  3. Open the Web Service Message Monitoring.
  4. Set the filter to "Erroneous" messages.
  5. Search the error messages related to XSLT exception.


This error is usually related to one of these causes:

  1. If there was a change in the logic of the iFlow/mapping.
  2. If a field within the payload is longer than the definition of the service allows it.


Make sure you are using the latest available standard version of the CPI or PI middleware. If there was any change in the iFlow/mapping, please revert the logic in the middleware and retest the scenario.
If the issue persists after deploying the latest available standard version of CPI/PI, check the allowed length within the message data element.
