Using the SOAP module

The SOAP module is currently in beta and does not support:

  • Redefine elements
  • Fraction digits restrictions
  • Total digits restrictions
  • White space restrictions
  • Multiple parts in input and output messages. Only single part messages are supported
  • Custom XML Schema elements defined with the help of SOAP Encoding (http://schemas.xmlsoap.org) schemas and elements.
INFO

Example:

The following would not be recognized correctly by Workfront Fusion:

<complexType name="ArrayOfFloat">

<complexContent>

  &lt;restriction base=&quot;soapenc:Array&quot;&gt;

     &lt;attribute ref=&quot;soapenc:arrayType&quot;

        wsdl:arrayType=&quot;xsd:integer[]&quot;/&gt;

  &lt;/restriction&gt;

</complexContent>

</complexType>

It includes the soapenc:Array, soapenc:arrayType and wsdl:arrayType references, which are not yet supported in Workfront Fusion.

Workaround

If the SOAP module refuses to process the WSDL file or throws various errors in the module’s configuration, you may try using the universal HTTP > Make a request module instead:

  1. In Workfront Fusion, create a new scenario.

  2. Insert the HTTP > Make a request module in the scenario.

  3. Open the module’s configuration and fill in the follwoing fields:

    Method

    POST

    Body type

    Raw

    Content type

    XML (application/xml)

    Parse response Enabled

  4. Open a new web browser window or tab.

  5. Paste the WSDL URL into the web browser’s address bar and fetch the XML file.

    The WSDL URL usually ends with ?wsdl, but not necessarily, for example http://voip.ms/api/v1/server.wsdl.

  6. If the WSDL file does not display directly in the web browser, open the downloaded file in a text editor.

  7. Search for the <service> or <wsdl:service> tag:

  8. Once located, copy the URL from the location attribute.

  9. In Workfront Fusion, paste the URL into the HTTP module’s URL field.

  10. Open the Online SOAP Client in a new web browser window/tab.

  11. Paste the WSDL URL into the WSDL URL field.

  12. Click Browse.

  13. Pick from the list of functions to the left, for example getLanguages.

  14. Copy the content of the Request XML text area.

  15. In Workfront Fusion, paste the copied content to the module’s URL field.

  16. Provide values for selected parameters by replacing the question marks with actual values:

  17. Close the module’s configuration by clicking OK.

  18. Execute the scenario or module.
