Web Service Consumer

The Web Service Consumer (WSC) connector consumes a SOAP Web service to acquire data from an external source. In many cases, you can use an existing MuleSoft connector, such as Workday or Service Now, to connect to a service provider. However, when no connector available for a specific Web service, the easiest way to consume the service from a Mule app is to use the Web Service Consumer connector.

The main features of this connector include:

  • Consuming DOC Literal Web services.

  • SOAP multipart messages.

  • SOAP Headers.

  • DataSense support for SOAP Headers, SOAP Body, and Attachment.

  • Embedded DataWeave transformations inside the operation.

  • Support and Unified experience for SOAP with attachments and MTOM handling.

  • Custom HTTP configuration as transport (Runtime and Design Time).

  • WS Securities support.
