Queries on Web Services

1. You can create a web serivce on any application you development. Now if you mean specific to the NorthBound Web Services of CPO, then those are predefined in the product, as are the WSDLs. If you look in the NorthBound Web serivces guide you'll see them. They are in the format:

http://:/WS/ NAME>?WSDL

A couple examples are



2. To use SOAP UI do the following...

A. Open a new soap ui project give it a name, input the WSDL you want to connect to

B. this will return all the methods to make web calls

C. Expand the method and double click on the SOAP Request - this will open the XML request

D. make sure you fill in the username/pass/domain on the Request Properties pane

E. Fill out the needed components in the SOAP XML message and click the play button at the top left. This will send the request and you'll see the return response from CPO in the right XML pane

If you need further help understanding this or using it in CPO please open a TAC case on CPO.
