IMPORTANT: This documentation has been discontinued. Read the updated SOAP V1 documentation on our new documentation portal.

SOAP V1 invokes SOAP endpoints from a pipeline. It uses a Apache FreeMarker template to generate the SOAP request message and converts the response from SOAP to JSON, trying its best not to disrupt the translation.

Take a look at the configuration parameters of the component:

  • URL: URL to be called - it may contain parameters following the {:param1} pattern, which will be replaced by the corresponding input message property.

  • Content Type: configures the Content Type and encoding.

  • SOAP Action: XML call header.

  • Account: account to be used by the component.

  • Template: Apache FreeMarker template for the SOAP message to be sent in the request.

  • Connection Timeout: connection expiration time (in milliseconds).

  • Reading Timeout: maximum time for reading (in milliseconds).

  • Stop On Client Error: if activated, the option will generate an error and suspend the pipeline execution.

  • Stop On Server Error: if activated, the option will generate an error and suspend the pipeline execution.

  • Advanced Settings: advanced configurations.

  • Allow Insecure Calls To HTTPS Endpoints: when activated, the option allows non-reliable calls to HTTPS endpoints to be made.

  • Enable Retries: when activated, the option allows new tries.

  • Maximum Number Of Retries Before Giving Up: maximum number of retries before giving up the call.

  • Time To Wait Before Each Retry: maximum time between retries (in milliseconds).

Messages flow


The component waits for a message in the following format:

header: {
body: {
// message structure that will be replaced by the Dust template


  • successful

status: XXX,
body: {
headers: {

  • with error

error: "error message",
code: XXX,
body: {
headers: {

IMPORTANT: for some errors, body and headers are unavailable.

About the template variable

The name of the variable can also have minus (-), dot (.) and colon (:) at any position, but they must be escaped with a preceding backslash (\). Otherwise, they can be interpreted as operators.

About numbers substitution

  <#assign x=42>
${x?string} <#-- the same as ${x} -->



Number format

<#setting number_format="0.####">

To check if the field isn't null:

<#if varTest??>${varTest}</#if>
