This plugin will provide a TWiki Topic interface to SOAP::Lite calls (a la TWiki:Codev/TWikiAsWebServicesClient).

It will cause the rendering of the topic to be as slow as the internet request - so its probably best to do on a local machine only.

Syntax Rules

  • the service parameter specifies the WSDL interface
  • call is the Soap method with parameters (will need to add quotes soon)
  • format like SEARCH
    • $list_element assumes the answer is an array of strings
    • and $struct(name) assumes the answer is a struct (with member variable of name)


Examples using the TWiki:Codev/GForgeSoapInterface - http://gforge.org/soap/index.php

  • %SOAP{service="http://gforge.org/soap/index.php" call="getPublicProjectNames()" format=" * Group: $list_element $n"}%
%SOAP{service="http://gforge.org/soap/index.php" call="getPublicProjectNames()" format=" * Group: $list_element $n"}%

SoapClientPlugin Global Settings

Plugin settings are stored as preferences variables. To reference a plugin setting write %<plugin>_<setting>%, i.e. %INTERWIKIPLUGIN_SHORTDESCRIPTION%

  • One line description, is shown in the TextFormattingRules topic:
    • Set SHORTDESCRIPTION = Provides a TWiki Topic interface to SOAP::Lite calls

  • Debug plugin: (See output in data/debug.txt)
    • Set DEBUG = 0
