Using the Web Service Process Component Wizard

Aptify provides the Web Service Process Component Generator Wizard to create a process component that can send and receive information through one of the web methods defined within a web service. Follow the steps below to use the wizard to generate process components that communicate with third party data sources through a Web Service.

Note that web service methods that require authentication are not supported. Only publicly accessible web methods are supported at this time.

  1. Go to the Process Component service.
  2. Launch the Aptify Web Service Process Component Generator Wizard from the Process Component entity browser toolbar or the toolbar of a view run from the service.
  3. Enter the URL information of the Web Service you want to communicate with in the URL field.
