ServiceGrid Article - HTTPS SOAP Metro CallService
SOAP is a lightweight protocol for exchange of information in a decentralized, distributed environment. It is an XML-based protocol that consists of three parts:
- an envelope that defines a framework for describing what is in a message and how to process it,
- a set of encoding rules for expressing instances of application-defined data types and,
- a convention for representing remote procedure calls and responses.
SOAP can potentially be used in combination with a variety of other protocols. Cisco uses SOAP in combination with HTTPS.
Parameters required at the Partner end
- Cisco SOAP URL
- UserID, Password: Cisco will provide the partner with a userID and a password.
To transport messages through SOAP RPC / HTTPS, the port 443 (HTTPS) is required and must be enabled.
