SOAP Examples and Hints

This section contains some general hints and examples for various client-side platforms.

PHP SOAP Client

 $soapSession = new SoapClient("http:/host/ewws/KBName/EWServiceAPIv2?wsdl",
array("exceptions" => false,
"location"=>"http://host/ewws/KBName/EWServiceAPIv2"));
$sess_id = $soapSession->EWlogin("KBName","user","password","en");
echo "$sess_id\n";
$ids = $soapSession->EWSelectFromTable($sess_id, "case", "1=1");
print_r($ids);
$map = $soapSession->EWRead($sess_id, "case", 521);
print_r($map); 

SoapUI

When using generic methods a specific descendant of the EWWSBaseUserObject structure needs to be passed. This is achieved by adding the xsi:type specialization to the tags defining the structure in the method call parameters. 

 <soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"
xmlns:tsc="http://KBname.api.ws.agiloft.com"
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
<soapenv:Header/>
<soapenv:Body>
<tsc:EWCreate>
<String_1>d57d</String_1>
<String_2>case</String_2>
<EWWSBaseUserObject_3 xsi:type="tsc:WSCase">
<summary>Example 1</summary>
</EWWSBaseUserObject_3>
</tsc:EWCreate>
</soapenv:Body>
</soapenv:Envelope> 

IIS Integration

If you are integrating Agiloft with Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS), please modify the web.config file of the IIS to include the <httpErrors existingResponse="PassThrough" /> tag:

Example
 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<configuration>
<system.webServer>
<httpErrors existingResponse="PassThrough" />
</system.webServer>
</configuration>

This will allow proper system exceptions to pass through the IIS API, rather than the default IIS errors. Explanation on the other available values is given at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/31040671/what-does-existingresponse-passthrough-mean-in-iis
