SOAP/JSON template example

An example of a Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP)/JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) template is included in SAM to show how you can gather data from the SolarWinds Information Service (SWIS) web service, which is a data access layer for the Orion Platform that provides a hybrid of object-oriented and relational features. Similar to SQL, you can use SWQL to query the Orion database for specific network information.

You can use the SOAP protocol to exchange information in the implementation of web services in computer networks. It relies on XML for its message format, and usually relies on other application layer protocols, such as HTTP. SOAP uses the POST method to send requests.

To navigate to this template:

  • Click Settings > All Settings > SAM Settings.
  • Under Application Monitor Templates, click Manage Templates.
  • Type SOAP in the Search field and click Search.

Prerequisites

WMI access to the SharePoint server.

Credentials

Windows Administrator on the target server.

Component monitors

This sample template includes three component monitors that you can modify. You can also add component monitors to this template.

SOAP Monitor

Tests a web service's ability to accept incoming sessions over a secure channel and then process the requested operation. This example shows how a Web Services Description Language (WSDL) schema is loaded when the SOAP XML Request value is set to "Load from WSDL". For details, see Configure the SOAP monitor.

SOAP Monitor

Tests a web service's ability to accept incoming sessions over a secure channel and then process the requested operation. This example shows how to manually create a SOAP envelope works when the SOAP XML Request value is set to "Manually enter SOAP XML Request".

JSON Monitor

Tests a web server's ability to accept incoming sessions over a secure channel and then transmit the requested page. It can also test the security certificate.
