I would like to create a Custom SOAP Service activity based on this UiPath article: I am using Visual Studio 2017 .
Any activity to be included into UiPath Activity needs to inherit “CodeActivity” abstract class .
Add References & NameSpace :
Once you inherit you need to override the Execute method and provide required implementation . Same like below .
In Consuming A Service :
You need to develop code to consume the service as a client.
Creating functions to consume the service , defining variables and fetching the results .
Make sure the class which contains the input variables & return result of webservices needs to be inherited from the CodeActivity .
and implement the abstract methods .
Once you are able to invoke the service and produce the desired result from the Visual Studio i.e you have a class object , you need to follow the same steps which i have implemented earlier . https://activities.uipath.com/docs/creating-a-custom-activity
How to consume a webservice , please refer the below links :
- Consume the service in your library , create necessary function and implement abstract function.
- Follow the steps to create the activity using the Nuget package explorer and adding it to the UiPath studio.
- update the Uipathrobot.exe.config file.
