ICS SOAP Connection – Retrieve File Uploaded WSDL by Greg Mally


When working with Oracle Integration Cloud Service (ICS) SOAP Connections, it is common to upload a WSDL file when configuring the Connection Properties:

The focus of this blog is how to retrieve/recover the WSDL in the event the original file is not available. This can be accomplished in several ways that include an on-line and/or off-line approach. Regardless of the approach, it is important to understand that when the WSDL file is uploaded it is added to the connection as an attachment.

On-Line WSDL Retrieval via REST AP

ICS provides a set of REST APIs for managing and monitoring integrations, adapters, connections, lookups, and packages (https://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/paas/integration-cloud-service/rest-api.html). One of these APIs can be used to retrieve the attached WSDL for the SOAP connection and interestingly enough, it is called Retrieve an Attachment. There are quite a few ways to work with REST APIs that include tools like SoapUI, browser add-ons like Postman/RESTClient, or linux commands like cURL. For this blog, we will be using linux cURL (https://curl.haxx.se/).

The Retrieve an Attachment API requires three pieces of information to construct the URL for the REST call:
1.  ICS host name ([domain].integration.[region].oraclecloud.com … the first part of the ICS Console URL)
2.  ICS Connection ID:

3.  ICS Connection Property Name (targetWSDLURL). Read the complete article here.
