Trying to setup a ‘SOAP Request’ activity for an existing SOAP Service (3rd party app), but with more complex structure than the tutorial here:
WSDL for this service has multiple methods with some nested datatypes, and while it’s valid format it gives a ‘Service description is not valid’ error in the SOAP Request Wizard screen.
I have a sample XML request file that works within SoapUI/Postman, and was hoping just to pop that into the activity.
Can’t see how to setup the Parameters collection to support full XML content though, does anyone have a working example?
Plan B would be to go to a Custom Activity in VS, but the tutorial there is missing detail on how the activity is laid out in the XAML editor:
Service Reference loads fine, but would love an example XAML file showing how the Send and Reply is configured.
Hi there - I’d logged a ticket on this one, and the advice was to swap from the SOAP Request activity to HTTP Activity.
The HTTP one does support a raw XML string as a body, and works fine with GETs and POSTs to my SOAP service.
No need to do custom activities on this.
Reach out if you need a sample project and I’ll send one.
Ok, here is the example that UIPath Support gave me showing a HTTP Request setup for an XML packet. The Body field is blank, but that’s where you put your SOAP envelope (as complex as you want).
Hope that helps! Main.xaml (7.8 KB)
Am using HTTP activity to invoke a soap request. I gave endpoint and after reading this forum i gave soap envelope in body field of options in properties panel. Body format is auto selected as application/xml. But when i try to run i get this below error
"The workflow has validation errors. Review and resolve them first.
System.Activities.InvalidWorkflowException: The workflow has validation errors. Review and resolve them first. —> System.Activities.ValidationException: Compiler error(s) encountered processing expression “”<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv=“http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/”".
Have you guys tried passing soap envelope inside http activity’s body property. I set body format as xml and pasted soap envelope in body property. here i am getting error cannot convert xdocument to string. I am getting the same error even if i enclose the xml inside double quotes since there are already few double quotes inside the soap envelop. I also tried using escape sequence \ before double quotes inside soap xml but am still getting same error.
