Depending on the operation, you may be able to modify some or all of the parameters of XML Instructions with valid values. For example, while the Migrate User action only permits one user to be migrated via the ControlPoint application interface, you can run the operation on multiple users by adding them to the XML instructions.
You should not attempt to change any part of the instructions apart from modifiable parameters. It is strongly recommended that you make a copy of the XML file before editing it, as it is possible that unintended changes can be made to tags or unmodifiable portions of the file.
