Calling external Web Services as custom notification



Is it possible to use custom notification (e.g. "Execute HTML Action") for calling external system web services through soap actions?

thank you very much for your KB Post! I'm very much afraid the only way this may be possible would be with an Exe/Script-Notification that performs the SOAP-Connect.

best regards.

Hi Torsten,

Thank you for the answer. And please don't be afraid :) - it's ok and we will try to manage some proxy to transfer postdata to a web service request (it's actually looks very similar to exe/script solution just through a web platform).

I just started using this product and thought it has some inner features to call web services.

Kind Regards Gytis

HTTP-Notifications are possible, yes. But that's "pure" HTTP-Requests then (GET/POST), they can't "imitate" SOAP unfortunately.
