Mapping Custom Endpoint Information in a Service Call

Custom endpoints have data that you can map as input for any of the SOAP services you have. SOAP services have their own endpoints that will be resolved individually when you deploy, but if you are calling another service from a service as part of an orchestration, you can use information from custom endpoints as inputs to the calling service so it can use that information to make whatever calls it needs to make to the other service.

To map custom endpoint parameters in your orchestrated SOAP service call:

  1. Ensure that the custom endpoint you want to use is in your current orchestration's Custom Endpoint Library.
  2. Add a SOAP service call that calls another SOAP service to your orchestration workflow.
  3. Click the Source elements column beside the called SOAP service call's URL and then under Custom Endpoints, select the custom endpoint URL parameter.
  4. Map other custom endpoint parameters to your SOAP service call's parameters as desired, such as user name and password.

You can also map custom endpoint information in RESTCaller, which includes special handling for calling a REST service from a SOAP service. For more information, refer to Calling RESTful Web Services from an Orchestration Workflow.
