PayPal integration using SOAP messages


for a integration scenario we want to call a PayPal SOAP API as described in

<a href=" "></a>

The PayPal safety requirements are fullfilled by giving a Username, Password and Signature in the SOAP Header:

  <RequesterCredentials xmlns=u201Durn:ebay:api:PayPalAPIu201D xsi:type=u201Debl:CustomSecurityHeaderTypeu201D>           
   <Credentials xmlns=u201Durn:ebay:apis:eBLBaseComponentsu201D xsi:type=u201Debl:UserIdPasswordTypeu201D>                        

I have given the three values as Adapter-Specific Message Attributes filled by UDF in Message Mapping.

The filled values are also visible in monitoring in section DynamicConfiguration.

SOAP Adapter:


But PayPal responded:

Authentication/Authorization Failed

You do not have permissions to make this API call

My credentials are ok. I have tested it within the PayPal NVP API Tester: .

How do I have to manipulate the SOAP header for a successful SOAP API call?

Is it necessary also to insert the nodes ?

If yes, how?

Thanks in advance,

When I have implemented a similar thing, I just created the whole input XMLfor the SOAP request "manually" in the Java mapping.

That should give you all freedom. You do not need to use the WSDL.
