To Set Up and Deploy a SOAP API

In this procedure, you set up an existing API by creating a proxy application in API Manager. You assign a name and a version designator to the application. API Manager creates an API version details page, which has controls for managing the application. You create and deploy a proxy in CloudHub if you have an account.

  1. In Anypoint Platform, click API Manager.

  2. On the API Administration page, click Add new API.

  3. Enter a name, version, and brief description of your API. For example:

    • API Name: Global Weather

    • Version Name: 1.0.development

    • Description: This API checks the weather forecast in cities around the world.

  4. Skip entering a URL for API Endpoint. This URL is not required at this point.

  5. Click Add.

  6. Click Configure Endpoint, under API Status.

  7. In Configure Endpoint, set the following options:

    • Select Endpoint With A Proxy

    • Type: Select WSDL

    • Implementation URI: Enter the WSDL for the existing SOAP service, for example: http://www.webservicex.net/globalweather.asmx?WSDL.

    • Configure Proxy For Cloudhub: Check this option.

      If you don’t want to deploy the proxy to CloudHub, download the proxy for deployment to another server using the control in Configure Endpoint.

  8. Save and deploy the proxy.

    When deployment is complete, you can do the following:

    • Consume the weather service by calling the proxy app at the URL, which appears in API Status and looks something like https://global-weather.cloudhub.io.

    • Use Postman to simulate a SOAP request to the proxy.

    • Apply policies to the proxy app in API Manager.
