IP Designer Series – Web Service

, ,

The Web Service Node is used for SOAP API calls.  The authentication information can be stored in a configuration set under the Web Service tab.  It is recommended that you create a new configuration set for each interface, and there can only be one Web Service configuration per set.  The authentication options are Basic or WS Security.  Both accept a username and password.

When setting up a Web Service node in IP Designer, select the configuration set that contains the authentication data.  Populate the WSDL tab with a schema file or URL.  That way, you can use the “Build” button to generate the SOAP call.  You can also type the SOAP call directly into the Activity window.
