SOAP action resolver


The SOAP Action Resolver filter enables you to identify an incoming XML message based on the SOAPAction HTTP header in the message. The SOAP Action Resolver filter applies to SOAP 1.1 and SOAP 1.2.

The following example illustrates how to locate the SOAPAction header in an incoming message. Consider the following SOAP message:

The SOAP Action for this message is HelloService.

Regular expression format

This filter uses the regular expression syntax specified by java.util.regex.Pattern . For more details, see http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/java/util/regex/Pattern.html


To configure the SOAP Action Resolver filter:

  1. Enter an appropriate name for the filter to display in policy in the Name field.
  2. Enter a regular expression to match the value of the SOAPAction HTTP header in the SOAP Action field.
  3. For example, enter ^getQuote$ to exactly match a SOAPAction header with a value of getQuote. Incoming messages with a matching SOAPAction value are passed on to the next filter on the success path in the policy.
