I get different results for the same transform in Octopus than outside of Octopus.
For example, if I use this website to test a transform (https://webconfigtransformationtester.apphb.com/) I can successfully transform xml using a xdt:Locator that ‘fails’ to find a match.
In my xml for example I may or may not have a particular element…but if I do, I want to SetAttributes on it.
When I put that same successful transform into Octopus the deployment fails, with an error like this:
File [deleted for brevity]xxx.Deploy.xml, line 4, position 6:
April 18th 2019 16:26:34
No element in the source document matches ‘/_defaultNamespace:xxx/_defaultNamespace:yyy/_defaultNamespace:zzz[@ref=‘AddressSearchService’ and @implementationName=‘nnn’]’
Why does Octopus error on a non Locator match - and is there a way to achieve this in Octopus?
