SOAP/XML Client side certificate integration

Recommended Posts

I am working on a project which requires me to make SOAP calls from FileMaker.

I have successfully done that in the past thanks to ScriptMaster ability to handle that. It works beautifully.

The new project now requires me to include a client certificate - issues by the SOAP API provider - in each requests. The documentation on their side is fairly scarce ("Install the certificate on your host" !).

I have no idea how to handle that but something tells me that there is no reason why it would not be possible to "include" the certificate in the Groovy bit of the plugin...

Any idea anyone ?

That doesn't actually help the user find the answer to his question, it answers a different one, and there are reasons for wanting this one answered.

Thanks for your answers.

I can't really make much sense of those 2 links pointing to what seems to be native java (not my league at all).

The MBS documentation happens to be word for word what I am trying to achieve (Apple GSX!). Therefore, looks like this one is a winner, not to mention that it allowed me to actually understand how client certificate works in a https request. However the MBS plugin is another  additional cost.

Ideally i would like to get to the point where i can integrate the same logics in the ScriptMaster "Post XML Data" module using SOAP (Hey, that's the 360Works ScriptMaster section of this forum...!), which basically appears to boil down to using the right cURL options...

Anyone knows how to set cURL options in this module ?

      WHen testing out High Sierra I am getting a Jav app in the dock every time I run FileMkaer with Scriptmaster. Closing doesn't seem to remove the app..
      It crashed the other day a couple of times so I ended up with three icons there
      What is this, can can it not be so???

      I have been trying to follow the tutorial for iText 7 and and coming unstuck quite early on and not sure if it is a change in the way the jars are loaded or as a result of using standalone JVM...
      As you know I might just have a lot of expertise with v5 and have no problems, but I also can't use 7 with older scriptmaster as there is MajorVersion issue as it requires later than Java 6
      Anyone care to be enlightening??

      We are running FM server 16 with FM pro 16 and FM Go 16 clients. We have do not use SSL certs as yet. When opening databases on the go client, the user is presented with a dialog stating that the connection is not secure and would they like to proceed. Secondly, programmatic access to the server is failing due to this new error being returned from the first "ping" of the server. I understand this is normal behaviour but obviously we want to get rid of this.
      We need to sign our server. The problem is that it is used on the intranet only and CA's will not sign machines that are not public facing. We will not be making our server public facing.
      What are the best practices surrounding getting this machine certified?
      Any help appreciated.

      ScriptMaster 5.01 is not working as usual.
      Just downloaded and updated and my solutions started to report errors on many dialog boxes.

      I have several customers that are still running Wondows Version 9, which is a version out of date. On attempting to load a 64 bit, ScriptMaster generated Plug-In, I am seeing a dialog that ScriptMaster can't run without Java 64 bit. On installing Java, there is no change and the same issue persists. This goes as far as literally crashing FileMaker. 
      Has anyone experienced this? Although it's really a Java issue, and the OS is out of date, I have two important customers running Windows 9.
