Here's the breakdown of this XPath expression:
//customValue: Searches for all customValue elements at any depth in the XML document.
[field/id='123']: Filters the customValue elements to only those that have a field child with an id child whose text value is '123'.
/value/text(): Fetches the text value of the value child element of the filtered customValue element.
