    SOAP action is not a mandatory field. It can be treated as any function that the webservice can perform. Now SOAP url can also call this action directly. In case the SOAP url does not include the action to be performed, this action has to be mentioned

    Hi ,

    it is like a function that web service can perform.

    you find the SOAP action from WSDL file at tag soap:operation:

    If more than one message type is described in the WSDL, several SOAP actions might also be defined. Check for the correct operation name. If no SOAP action is defined in the WSDL, you can leave the parameter in the receiver channel empty.
