SOAP is a lightweight protocol for the exchange of information in a decentralized, distributed environment. It is an XML-based protocol that consists of three parts: an envelope that defines a framework for describing what is in a message and how to process it, a set of encoding rules for expressing instances of application-defined data types, and a convention for representing remote procedure calls and responses.

A SOAP task assigns agents to replicate one or more client requests and monitor the Web Services for availability, errors, and proper content. The agent will send alerts If an issue is detected based upon the preferences selected in the device setup.

You can manually configure a SOAP task using a SOAP envelope or you can use the SOAP Wizard by clicking the button at the bottom of the page.

The HTTP/SOAP wizard allows you to specify a WSDL URL and lets you select a valid parameters to test before you continue. (You must specify the entire url including http, such as “”).
