    How to send submission data in ADF XML format to a database

    Asked by RsvhHyundai on February 10, 2016 at 02:15 PM

    Our database requires the incoming form submissions to be in ADF/XML format. Can this be done in JotForm?

    I'm afraid that our system can't send submission data in ADF/XML format directly. However, you can POST submission data from a JotForm form to your own PHP page, which means that you or your web developer could design a PHP page on your server to render the incoming data and relay it to your database in the required XML format.

    We have a guide that explains the process for sending POST data from a JotForm form to a PHP page, and then from that PHP page to a MySQL database:


    The process would be similar in your case, though instead of sending it to MySQL you would be building your desired XML format, and then sending that to your database. You may need to hire a developer to do the work for you, in which case the above guide should help get them started.

    Please let us know if you need further clarifications or assistance, and we will do our best to help.
