SOAP Endpoints

Learn how to create SOAP endpoints for use in building pipelines.

You create SOAP endpoints by creating an endpoint path and importing a .wsdl file. This file describes the functionality of a SOAP based web service and relies on XML. You then import SOAP Connectors to generate a SOAP API.

If you have an existing SOAP API where Xapix is the client, then you need to onboard a SOAP Connector using the Add Connector functionality. See SOAP Connectors.

Any created endpoint is also reachable with a trailing slash. For example, if your published endpoint is .../foo, then it is also reachable by .../foo/.

To add a SOAP endpoint, follow these steps.

  1. From within a project, select Home

  2. Click SOAP Endpoint.

  3. In the New SOAP Endpoint dialog, enter an path and, if required, path parameters.

  4. In the Import box that appears, drop or browse to a SOAP file to import the file to the project.

  5. The new SOAP endpoint appears in the list of SOAP endpoints in the Home menu.

  6. Click the new endpoint under SOAP endpoints to display the Pipeline dashboard with Request and Endpoint units.

  7. Begin building the pipeline.
