Usually XOG version are compatible with Clarity version if there is not changes in the database structure. Differences in .xsd files could mean differences between data in Clarity.
Anyway default version association:
Clarity v.12.1 SP1
i.e. XOG 10.50.0.125
for example XOG V188.8.131.5271 could work with a Clarity v.13.0.1, but there is a risk...
Testing XOG from Clarity web
XML Open Gateway (XOG)
web service interface that you can use to:
*Move configuration data from one system to another
to read data from or write data to CA Clarity using XML and web services
GEL tags that can be used with XML for more advanced custom integration tasks
CA Clarity web services use XML messages that follow the SOAP standard.
SOAP Testing - Queries\WSDL
