SOAP Snap Pack


SOAP is an XML-based messaging protocol.

Use Snaps in this Snap Pack to call a SOAP endpoint using the incoming data and write out a SOAP response.

Supported Versions

This Snap Pack is tested against:

  • Apache CXF 3.4.2
  • wsdl11
  • wsdl20, v 1.4

Supported Application

SOAP Snap Pack supports integration with NetSuite.

SOAP Snap Pack uses the 4.23 GA version (main7430)

Due to an upgrade to the CXF library, SOAP Execute Snap that uses the CXF client targeting SOAP 1.2 endpoints can fail. We also observe increased thread counts related to this upgrade. Hence, during the 4.24 auto-upgrade on , we did not update the SOAP Snap Pack and are moving the stable version for all your Orgs to main7430 (4.23 GA) instead of main8556 (4.24 GA). This should not impact your existing Pipelines. 

You can also use SOAP Snap Pack version 423patches7441 that was deployed as 4.23 dot release on , if needed.

StableUpgraded with the latest SnapLogic Platform release.
4.23 Patch423patches7411-Latest

Enhances the SOAP Execute Snap by including an additional output view. When named debug (all lower-case), the Snap outputs the SOAP request headers, envelope, and the output document that is written to the default output view. 


Upgraded with the latest SnapLogic Platform release.

4.22 Patch422patches6770

Enhances the SOAP Execute Snap by adding WSSE header to support SOAP WSSE Account with Apache HttpComponents library.

4.22 Patch422patches6656

Fixes the SOAP Execute Snap failure due to different character sets used in the HTTP request data.

StableUpgraded with the latest SnapLogic Platform release.
4.21 Patch421patches6040

Requires the use of a generic envelope while executing a create a request through an NTLM account in the SOAP Execute Snap to ensure the output is rendered as expected.


Enhances SOAP Execute, by making it necessary to provide both key and value under the HTTP header field while invoking a task.

4.20 Patchsoap8816

Enhances the SOAP Execute Snap to allow user-specified empty fields in the SOAP request.

4.20 Patchsoap8762
  • Fixes the SOAP Execute Snap to:
    • Successfully handle redirected requests, when the WSDL file specifies an HTTP URL which redirects SOAP requests to an HTTPS URL.
    • Successfully generate the schema even if the XSD does not contain the <types> element.  
4.20 Patchsoap8712

Fixes the SOAP Execute Snap where the Snap throws an NPE error when generating a SOAP request template.

4.20snapsmrc535-StableUpgraded with the latest SnapLogic Platform release.
4.19 Patchsoap8642-Latest
  • Fixes the SOAP Execute Snap where the Snap encounters the following issues:
    • The Snap throws NPE when generating a SOAP request template.
    • The Snap throws the following error when making a SOAP call, if the SOAPAction HTTP header contains a stringDoes not match an operation.
4.19 Patchsoap8375-Latest

The SOAP Snaps have a Library API field. When the selected value is the non-default HTTP Components, there was a breaking change in the structure of the output response document between 4.19 GA version (snapsmrc528) and the latest patch version (soap8375). We recommend that if you want to use the non-default (non-CXF) value for Library API, then you must use this latest patch version as subsequent GA releases may result in Pipeline executions failing. 

If your current or new Pipelines use CXF as the Library API value, or do not handle SOAP response bodies greater than 1000 lines, or do not rely on NTLM authentication, then you can continue using your existing Snap Pack version (stable distribution – snapsmrc528).


Adds the Library API field to the SOAP Execute Snap to enable execution over HTTP. The supported libraries are Apache HttpComponents and Apache CXF, and both the libraries support the Message Transmission Optimization Mechanism (MTOM).
