abstract fun withXml(action: Action<in XmlProvider>)(source)

Allow configuration of the descriptor, after it has been generated according to the input data.

plugins {
    id 'ivy-publish'

publishing {
  publications {
    ivy(IvyPublication) {
      descriptor {
        withXml {
          asNode().dependencies.dependency.find { it.@org == "junit" }.@rev = "4.10"
Note that due to Gradle's internal type conversion system, you can pass a Groovy closure to this method and it will be automatically converted to an Action.

Each action/closure passed to this method will be stored as a callback, and executed when the publication that this descriptor is attached to is published.

For details on the structure of the XML to be modified, see the Ivy Module Descriptor reference.
