I knew why it was not automatically parsed and I solved it.

The reason it has not been parsed is that the XML data passed to the response is so large that the event is restricted and the XML structure is corrupted.

i modified the "TRUNCATE" setting to include all the XML data in one event so that it was automatically parsed.

Here is the props.conf configuration.

[xml_data]
KV_MODE = xml
# BREAK_ONLY_BEFORE = \<data_list_wrap
BREAK_ONLY_BEFORE = \ <\? Xml version = \ "1 \ .0 \" encoding = \ "UTF-8 \" \?
SHOULD_LINEMERGE = true
TRUNCATE = 70000

Is that XML above an example of what you want to be indexed ?

yes.
i want parsing event from that one xml data
like this :

  1. event parsing
  2. event parsing by "data" tag

----------1st evnet ----------
data
...(skip)
/data

----------2nd evnet ----------

...(skip)
/data

  1. field extraction
  2. fields data_tag0, data_tag1, data_tag2 ....(skip)
