SOAP Adapter: is it possible to ask for UserID/password?

Hi,

when operating the SOAP Adapter as a WS Server I would like to accept SOAP messages via a Login procedures.

Without the user/password how is it possibile to be sure that each partner is sending its own data?

For example, I want to avoid that a customer will send a purchase order for another customer....

Bye,

Sergio

    Sergio,

    As far as I know, the SOAP adapter does not support any authentication mechanism. A workaround would be to put a reverse proxy in front of the SOAP adapter. But even then, you would still have to trust the identity configured in the header of the SOAP message (sending business system).

    The HTTP adapter does support all security: basic authentication and authentication based on client certificate. But there too, you have to trust the identity of the business partner specified in the URL.

    Kind regards, Guy Crets
