Issue with SOAP Receiver, Dynamic Configuration / URL, using HTTPS


Hi all,

I've been researching and troubleshooting this quite a bit from posts here on the SDN but not making much headway. I'm hoping someone can help me out with this.

My scenario is I have an interface that ends up at a SOAP receiver that needs to redirect the payload to a Sender SOAP channel. In the end, I need to do this dynamically, and this is where I'm hitting a wall.

Here's what works, configuration for the SOAP receiver channel. This will take an incoming payload and redirect it to a given SOAP Sender. There is a simple MM prior:

- Adapter type: SOAP 7.01 version

- Message Protocol: SOAP 1.1

- Adapter Engine: Integration Server

- Target URL: https://<myserver>:52201/XISOAPAdapter/MessageServlet?channel=:LMP_D:LMP_SOAP_Out_02

- Aside: I also do a PayloadSwapBean in the module, but should not matter. Only mentioning for full disclosure 😊

This does successfully redirect the payload to a SOAP sender which processes it through without issue.

So I took the next step to set the TargetURL dynamically: The following are the additional mods:

1) UDF in the message map to set the TServerLocation

DynamicConfiguration conf = (DynamicConfiguration) container.getTransformationParameters().get(StreamTransformationConstants.DYNAMIC_CONFIGURATION);
DynamicConfigurationKey key = DynamicConfigurationKey.create("", "TServerLocation");

2) In the SOAP Receiver:

- Target URL set to "https://" without the quotes

- Advanced Tab, check 'Use Adapter Specific Message Attributes' and 'Variable Transport Binding'

Addtl info to the above:

- varURL in the UDF is a passed in variable and has the same value as the initial static TargetURL in the comm channel (https://<myserver>:52201/XISOAPAdapter/MessageServlet?channel=:LMP_D:LMP_SOAP_Out_02)

- New targetURL value of "https://" is because the URL I am sending is also a https one and these must match per SDN posts I have seen

When I execute this using the same data I see:

1) SXI_MONITOR is successful and there is a Dynamic Configuration node with the values:

<SAP:DynamicConfiguration xmlns:SAP="" xmlns:SOAP="" SOAP:mustUnderstand="1">
  <SAP:Record namespace="" name="TServerLocation">https://<myserver>:52201/XISOAPAdapter/MessageServlet?channel=:LMP_D:LMP_SOAP_Out_02</SAP:Record> 
  <SAP:Record namespace="" name="FileName">DE4_SC-INT-2076_20111003.xml</SAP:Record> 

2) An error in the RTB Adapter Monitor saying:

"invalid content type for SOAP: TEXT/HTML; HTTP 401 Unauthorized: invalid content type for SOAP: TEXT/HTML; HTTP 401 Unauthorized"

So it seems like the dynamic config is being set as I expect, and the value identical to the harcoded TargetURL successful execution. I don't understand the error I am getting with the 401 message given the data is identical to the prior successful run and it should be the same URL.

As I said, I've done a lot of reading and testing with the SDN posts. <<Text Removed>>, but not link spamming 😊

Thanks for the help!
