SOAP Connector


The SOAP connector for Jitterbit Harmony Cloud Studio provides an interface for entering user-provided input such as a Web Services Description Language (WSDL) file to create a SOAP connection. That connection provides the foundation to configure associated SOAP connector activities that interact with the connection. Together, a specific SOAP connection and its activities are referred to as a SOAP endpoint.

Connector Overview

This connector is used to first configure a SOAP connection, establishing access to a SOAP web service, and then used to configure one or more SOAP activities associated with that connection as a source or target within an operation. The specific activities that are available depend on the SOAP methods selected during configuration of the SOAP connection.

Whether the activity can be used as a source or a target in an operation depends on the specific web service and the request and response structures, if present. For more information about what determines if an activity can be used as a source or target, see Parts of an Operation in Operation Creation and Configuration.

Accessing the Connector

The SOAP connector is accessed from the Connectivity tab of the design component palette by using the Show dropdown to filter on Connectors.

Once a connection is configured, activities associated with the endpoint are available by using the Show dropdown to filter on Endpoints and then clicking the SOAP connection block:
