    Hello, Gregory,

    The KendoReact Grid accepts only JSON data array.

    In order of the Grid to display the data, it has to be converted to JSON.

    There is a nice npm package that does that:

    https://www.npmjs.com/package/xml-js

    Also, a request has to be made in order to retrieve that XML data:

    Please have in mind that the KendoReact components only visualize the data that they receive, the component does not make a request to different APIs to consume data. This is because in React there is a concept of the state as a single source of truth, and all data manipulation has to go through it.

    Regards,
