Advanced Call Web Service

The Advanced Call Web Service provides support for the following:

  • Support for SOAP attachments
  • Support for Base64 attachments
  • Ability to call web services that do not explicitly declare the requirement for WS-Security UsernameToken in the WSDL policy
  • Ability to call web services that use a self-signed SSL certificate

The attachment provided with the download provides more information and examples. Where possible, use the base product Call Web Service functionality instead.

  • Hi James,

    I am using this smart service to fetch the document.

    I configured all the required parameters.But I am getting the below error while running the process:

    "bundleName for SmartServiceException, builder.smartServiceClass=class com.appiancorp.ps.plugin.wss.smartservice.AbstractCallSoapWebService"

    Is that issue with configuration or smart service?

  • Hi James,

  • Hi james we have to use this plugin to make a call to a soap web service that requires basic authentication. In the Service Authentication field of the smart service we have set this value {action: "USERNAME_TOKEN_PLAIN_PASSWORD", usernameTokenSystemKey: "test.ged"} and in the third-part credentials we have defined the test.ged configuring username and password any idea?

  • Facing this error when tried to deploy the plugin:

    HTTP Code: 500 APNX-1-4198-019 An Error Has Occurred Expression evaluation error [evaluation ID = R85DAUKZ] : An error occurred while executing a save: java.util.UnknownFormatConversionException: Conversion = 'D'

  • Hi James,

    We are encoutering an issue with this advanced plugin for french character in all environment.

    The SOAP envelope works with UFT-8 encoding which means that also French characters like “l'Evêque Lévescault” are supposed to work.
    We were able to verify that other SOAP tools like SOAP UI can call the web service endpoint with French characters correctly.

    The rule that generates xml also queries data from an Oracle database table.
    (Between Appian and Oracle Hibernate is used to retrieve data. It might be possible that French characters are already badly converted here?)
    But since the web service plugin is a custom plugin it is likely that this handles special characters incorrectly.

    Please kindly help us in resolving the issue.

    Thank you for your kind attention in this regard.
