Loading Abstracted Metadata for ENVI product reader

Good day everyone

I am trying to read in simulated SAR data that is stored in the ENVI format. However I want to read this in with additional metadata. According to the Help section, there is an xml file that has to be read in with the ENVI data product.

It says under the Import ENVI section: “Abstracted Metadata can be imported by creating a metadata.xml file in the same folder as the ENVI product.”

I have such an xml file and I can load in the metadata using NEST but for some reason this cannot be done with the Sentinel-1 toolbox. Has this functionality been removed and if so what is the way to go about this?

Good day everyone

Any replies to this post will be appreciated.
