Thanks to KuanChiang Lui‌ to provide this Trick.

Below is the example output response from SOAP web request. The return output in XML format.

<?xml version="1.0"
  encoding="utf-8"?>

<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
  xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
  xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
  <soap:Body>
  <AddListResponse
  xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/">
  <AddListResult>string</AddListResult>
  </AddListResponse>
  </soap:Body>

</soap:Envelope>

By using the XPath expression, we able to get the value of [AddListResult] and saved it into variable for subsequent action.

XPath format: //soap:Body/descendant::*[name()='<Node name>']

//soap:Body/descendant::*[name()='AddListResult']

  <soap:Body>

    <GetUserPropertyByAccountNameResponse xmlns="http://microsoft.com/webservices/SharePointPortalServer/UserProfileService">

      <GetUserPropertyByAccountNameResult>

        <IsPrivacyChanged>false</IsPrivacyChanged>

        <IsValueChanged>false</IsValueChanged>

        <Name>FirstName</Name>

        <Privacy>Public</Privacy>

        <Values>

          <ValueData>

            <Value xsi:type="xsd:string">MyName</Value>

        </Values>

      </GetUserPropertyByAccountNameResult>

    </GetUserPropertyByAccountNameResponse>

  </soap:Body>

</soap:Envelope>

//*[local-name()='Value']

OR

//soap:Body/descendant::*[name()='Value']

MyName
