Description of the illustration soap_rt_flow.png

This diagram shows the runtime process for a SOAP Connector API. The first block shows the custom code calling the SOAP Connector API. The connector then calls on its implementation. Request schemas, security policies and the connector API configuration is passed from the connector implementation to the Asset Catalog for storage. The implementation sends the JSON payload to the JSON translator, where the payload is translated into XML format and returned to the implementation. In the final block, the implmentation sends the translated payload to the external SOAP service.

The return flow shows the SOAP service sending an XML response back to the connector implementation, which sends the response to the translator where it’s translated back into JSON. The JSON response is passed from the implementation to the connector API, which relays the data back to the custom code.
