I am still getting familiar with Tyk. I have some questions about Tyk and SOAP.
I understand that Tyk is made for REST and the main focus is there.
In the discussions SOAP support came up. Is SOAP still totally unsupported?
I unfortunately need to fetch data from two SOAP endpoints as well as some REST endpoints.
Can you use plugins, a Python plugin for example, to access some SOAP endpoints?
I only need to fetch some data. Nothing else.
Hi Louis, in which part of the request flow are you planning to use the plugin?
Is it an authentication middleware?
I basically need Tyk to do the whole request.
What I am wondering…
When Tyk receive a REST get, that with TYK plugins or middleware and templates, it can change it into a request to a SOAP service. I just need to fetch information from the soap service but there is authentication involved. It is a bit on the integration side already… but I am hoping
The REST part is clear and we are going to continue with Tyk for that.
Would this be something I could do with a virtual endpoint?
Maybe, it would be quite cumbersome to construct XML in JS :-/
Have you though about using the body transforms? You can transform a JS request into an XML request, inject the correct mime type header and then redirect the request URL?
