The parent components of integration components in an integration object correspond to their parents in XML. For integration component fields, if the property XML Parent Field is set, then the field in the same component with its Name value equal to the XML Parent Field corresponds to the parent in the XML. This happens because elements can be mapped to fields of integration components.
For integration component fields, if the property XML Parent Field is not set, then the parent component corresponds to the parent in the XML.
