SOAP response as a collection for UI (for example for select input options)

Dear sirs,

Kindly ask you to explain how to use SOAP response as a collection for select input without saving of received collection in entity.

Our case: We have a database which include Materials table. It can be accessed through SOAP for reading and searching. We want use this database in some Bizagi process as a collection for limiting user choice. What is the best way to do it?

P/S/ at present our company have been testing Bizagi Xpress version for understanding of usability and for making decision if this software suits for enterprise application

Thank you in advance.

Dear Aleksandr,

Bizagi can integrate to a external database or external application in two ways:

  1. Virtualization: Bizagi is able to connect to SQL Server or Oracle database and map the data into Bizagi´s Model Data.To read more, please check it out: http://help.bizagi.com/bpmsuite/en/index.html?virtualization.htm
  2. SOAP: As you need, Bizagi is able to connect to an external SOA Server and request information from external service methods. To read more, please check it out: http://help.bizagi.com/bpmsuite/en/index.html?invokingsoa_externalserv.htm

Both of them are very useful in Bizagi implementations, just depending of your needs.

Dear Juan,

According to articles you pointed it is realy easy to invoke external webservice.

But my question was about how to use SOAP-response: whether I need to temporary save SOAP response in Bizagi entity and then bind that entity to UI elements or there is some way to NOT keep all rows of SOAP-response in Bizagi database only for choosing by user one of them ? (selected item (or items) certainly have to be saved in Bizagi entity).

My purpose is to limit users choice.

Thank you.

Dear Aleksandr,

Bizagi does not receive a temporary SOAP response. All data is saved into entities. An idea is to save data into an entity and then remove unnecessary registers using a scripting rule in the next activity. Please check these links out:
