Call PHP webservice from C# and pass credentials in SOAPHeader RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, 

    I got provided external webservice wsdl url. 
    The webservice is written in php. 
    With every request I must send my credentials. 


    I sow example with using SOAPHEADERS according to this link
    and have created all is needed. 
    Credentials are assinged to service class but However it is not working.

    I am not so good with PHP so I am wondering :
    Is it possible that on providers PHP code there is not defined [SoapHeader("AuthHeader")] above methods ? 

    I have added this header in generated code (before methods) after importing wsdl.

    Do you have any suggestion?

    I have found the solution. The problem was in Naming of these field for Credentials. 
    Provider of webservice did not defined proper Header Name. 
    After renaming the fields it worked perfectly. 

    Thank you very much for your time and replies.

  • Not sure if this helps.  I just created a webservice SOAP connection using .Net Core 2.0.  It connects to Salesforce using a WSDL.  Here is a sample.  It uses async methods.

    using System;
    using SFDC;
    using System.ServiceModel;
    using System.Threading.Tasks;
    using System.IO;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    namespace SfLogin
        class Program
            static string userName = "";
            static string password = "";
            static string securityToken = "";
            static SoapClient loginSc;
            static SoapClient sc;
            static LoginResult lir;
            static SessionHeader header;
            static EndpointAddress endpoint;
            static bool success;
            static void Main(string[] args)
                loginSc = new SoapClient();
                sc = new SoapClient();
            static async System.Threading.Tasks.Task login()
                    loginResponse liResp = await SfLogin();
                    lir = liResp.result;
                catch (Exception e)
                    Console.WriteLine("An unexpected error has occured: " + e.Message);
                if (lir.passwordExpired)
                    Console.WriteLine("An error has occurred. Your password has expired.");
                    success = false;
                endpoint = new EndpointAddress(lir.serverUrl);
                header = new SessionHeader();
                header.sessionId = lir.sessionId;
                sc = new SoapClient(SoapClient.EndpointConfiguration.Soap, endpoint);
                success = true;
            static async System.Threading.Tasks.Task<loginResponse> SfLogin()
                loginResponse liResp = await loginSc.loginAsync(null, null, userName, password + securityToken);
                return liResp;
            static async System.Threading.Tasks.Task logout()
                    logoutResponse loResp = await SfLogout();
                    Console.WriteLine("Logged out.");
                catch (Exception e)
                    Console.WriteLine("An unexpected error has occured: " + e.Message);
            static async System.Threading.Tasks.Task<logoutResponse> SfLogout()
                logoutResponse loResp = await sc.logoutAsync(header, null);
                return loResp;
