SOAP message functions

After you create a SOAP message record, you can click Generate sample SOAP messages to populate the SOAP Message Functions related list.

The instance creates these functions by reading the supplied WSDL definition.

Figure 1. Soap message function

The SOAP action, SOAP endpoint, and Envelope fields should be populated automatically based on the WSDL definition. The Envelope defines the message to send to the endpoint. In this example, the Envelope values have this format:

...
<!-- optional --><short_description xsi:type="xsd:string">String</short_description>
...

To submit a specific value, enter the value directly in the appropriate XML tag. In this example, to set the Short description for a record, enter:

...
<short_descriptionxsi:type="xsd:string">This is the short description</short_description>
...
