Currently no policy is available for the XSL Node.

    RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this RFE and apologies it has been in Submitted status for so long. We agree that this enhancement would improve the product. We also note that it is possible to achieve the use case with the current capability of the product - User Defined Properties could be added to the flow to carry the stylesheet information. A Compute node (or JCN) prior to the stylesheet node could read this value and place it in the LocalEnvironment override. The UDP itself can be changed dynamically without need to restart the server, either using our administrative API or using the controls in our web UI. A similar approach could be taken using a User Defined Policy, which is also dynamically redeployable from ACEv11.0.0.6 ( We acknowledge that a dedicated XSL policy would have superior usability though, so the status of the RFE is updated to Uncommitted Candidate and we will continue to monitor for popularity.
