Operation name resolver


The Operation Name filter enables you to identify an incoming XML message based on the SOAP operation in the message.

The following example shows how to find the SOAP operation of an incoming message. Consider the following SOAP message:

The SOAP operation for this message and its namespace are as follows:

  • SOAP operation:getTime
  • SOAP operation namespace:urn:timeservice

The SOAP operation is the first child element of the SOAP <soap:Body> element.


To configure the Operation Name filter:

  1. Enter an appropriate name for the filter to display in a policy in the Name field.
  2. Enter the name of the SOAP operation in the Operation field. Incoming messages with an operation name matching the value entered here are passed on to the next success filter in the policy.
  3. Enter the namespace to which the SOAP operation belongs in the Namespace field.
