Using SOAPUI to call Salesforce API

Once you get the enterprise.wsdl from Salesforce, it is pretty easy to use SOAPUI in order to evaluate/test quickly the service contract exposed by Salesforce.

Choose the login service in order to get a session and server URL for the next subsequent call to others exposed operations :

  • Copy the serverUrl and use this new endpoint provided in teh next call
  • Copy the sessionId and use it to keep the same session
  • SFDC-soapui-login

    Choose the getUserInfo service :
    SFDC-soapui-getUserInfo

    Choose the getUserInfo service :
    SFDC-soapui-search
