Creating a Service Connector from a WSDL File

Creating a Service Connector from a WSDL File

You can import a WSDL file to easily create a service connector with multiple operations. Use the
New Service Connector from WSDL
wizard to import a WSDL file and create a service connector. After you specify the WSDL file, Application Integration parses the file and loads the operations.
If an error occurs during import, the wizard displays the error under
Error/Warnings
on the
Progess
tab. You can take corrective actions and import the WSDL file again.
  1. In
    Application Integration
    , click
    New
    on the left navigation bar.
    The
    New Asset
    dialog box appears.

  4. Specify a name, location, and description for the service connector.
  5. In the
    WSDL File
    section, use one of the following options to specify the WSDL file that you want to import:
    • To use a WSDL file from your local system, select
      File
      , and then select the WSDL file.
      You can either select a single
      .wsdl
      file or a single
      .zip
      file that contains self-contained
      .wsdl
      files and
      .xsd
      schema files.
    • To use a URL that contains a WSDL file, select
      URL
      . The
      WSDL URL
      and
      Use authentication
      fields appear. In the
      WSDL URL
      field, enter the URL that contains the WSDL file. Select the
      Use authentication
      option to specify the user name and password to access the WSDL URL.
  6. Click

  7. From the
    Service Name
    list, select the service that you want to use from the imported WSDL file.
    The
    Service URL
    field displays the URL to which the service connector sends requests. You cannot edit this URL.
  8. From the
    Service Port
    list, select the port that you want the service connector to use.
  9. In the
    Operations
    section, select the operations that you want the service connector to provide.
    The operations that you select will be available as actions when you create a process and use the service connector.

    Next
    .
    The
    Summary
    tab appears.

  12. Click
    Start Import
    .
    Application Integration starts importing the WSDL file and displays the status on the
    Progress
    tab. The
    Progress
    tab indicates whether the import completed successfully, failed, or completed with warnings.
    The following image shows the
    Progress
    tab:

    If you close the dialog box or cancel the import, the import process stops and the service connector is not created.
    If the import fails or completes with warnings, click the
    Error/Warnings
    tab to understand why the import did not complete successfully. You can fix the issues and import the WSDL file again.
    The following image shows a successful import:
