Insert WS-Addressing information

Overview

The WS-Addressing specification defines a transport-independent standard for including addressing information in SOAP messages. API Gateway can generate WS-Addressing information based on a configured endpoint in a policy, and then insert this information into SOAP messages.

Configuration

Complete the following fields to configure API Gateway to insert WS-Addressing information into the SOAP message header.

Name:
Enter an appropriate name for the filter to display in a policy.

Reply To:
Indicates to the destination server where it should send response messages to.

Fault To:

MessageID:
A unique identifier to distinguish this message from others at the destination server. It also provides a mechanism for correlating a specific request with its corresponding response message.

Namespace:
The WS-Addressing namespace to use in the WS-Addressing block.
