regex to get xml (Element Name + Value)

Builder

I have a xml-field with two different Elements :


...


...

I wanted to extract the 2 Elements, but also knowing after extract, where the info is coming form.

If I make something like that :
<(Element1|Element2)\b[^>]>(?P.)</(Element1|Element2)

Then I have the multivalued element "element", but I don't know it the data in it, is form Element1 or 2

Is it possible to have regex extracting the whole element with tag ? like
element= ...
...

If you want to include the tags in your field value you just need to move them into the parentheses and make sure the closing tags don't get greedily overlooked:

(?P<element><element[12]\b[^>]*>.*?</element[12]>)

It works, many thanks !

Because the element Name is complete different, I've adapted your answer to

(?P<(element1|element2)\b[^>]>.?</(element1|element2)>)
