In Sharepoint there are many OOB list with a field "Xml". For example, by running this:
$url = http://sharepoint.domain.com $site = Get-SPSite $url $site.rootweb.lists["User Information List"].items.xml
I can get the first record's XML field content, which similar to below:
<z:row xmlns:z='#RowsetSchema' ows_Content TypeId='0x011000BD0F8C58BB1C05479051B0702A 322F4F' ows_Title='Welcome to my blog!' ows_Body='<div class="ExternalClas sB6FC829583324141B0BCF6104B6D0E23"> ;<p>This is where I'll be sharing my thoughts on topics that matter to me. Who knows... I might even share pictures, videos and links to other interesting stuff.</p><p>If I catch your interest, let me hear from you.</p></div>' ows_NumComments='0' ows_PostCategory='' ows_CategoryID='' ows_PublishedDate='2014-02-05 00:31:41' ows_RatedBy='' ows_LikedBy='' ows_ID='1' ows_ContentType='Post' ows_Modified='2014-02-04 20:31:41' ows_Created='2014-02-04 20:31:41' ows_Author='1073741823;#System Account' ows_Editor='1073741823;#System Account' ows_owshiddenversion='1' ows_WorkflowVersion='1' />
My question is : 1. What kind of XML is it? Do it has a format name and suggested accessing method? 2. Can I access the value "ows_Author" by powershell?
