Greetings Experts,

I am trying to write a PHP script to integrate with an on-line service called Agemni. My problem, in a nutshell, is that I need to pass an array of items to the SOAP server Unfortunately I have no idea how to do that. I am quite new to using SOAP with PHP. The applicable part of the WSDL is below the part I'm having trouble with are the keys\values of type "tns:ArrayOfAnyType". I need to pass an array consisting of keys  fname, lname and phone initially to test.

      <s:element name="CreateEntity">
        <s:complexType>
          <s:sequence>
            <s:element minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1" name="strUsername" type="s:string" />
            <s:element minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1" name="strPassword" type="s:string" />
            <s:element minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1" name="strCompanyName" type="s:string" />
            <s:element minOccurs="1" maxOccurs="1" name="objecttype" type="s:int" />
            <s:element minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1" name="keys" type="tns:ArrayOfAnyType" />
            <s:element minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1" name="values" type="tns:ArrayOfAnyType" />
          </s:sequence>
        </s:complexType>
      </s:element>

Here is the code I have written so far.

<?php

// Define Variables

   $wsdl = "http://agemni.com/AgemniWebservices/service1.asmx?WSDL";

// Define array

   $parameters['parameters']['strUsername']     = "";
   $parameters['parameters']['strPassword']     = "";
   $parameters['parameters']['strCompanyName']  = "";
   $parameters['parameters']['objecttype']      = 2;
   $parameters['parameters']['keys']            = ;
   $parameters['parameters']['values']          = ;

// Fetch Dishstar WSDL
// Note WSDL caching of TTL 86400 seconds is enabled in php.ini for performance

   $client = new SoapClient($wsdl, array('trace' => 1));
   
// Make SOAP Call in WSDL mode

   try {
     $result = $client->__soapCall("CreateEntity", $parameters);

   } catch (SoapFault $fault) {
    trigger_error("SOAP Fault: (faultcode: {$fault->faultcode}, faultstring: {$fault->faultstring})", E_USER_ERROR);
   }
    
// Display results of SOAP call
    
   var_dump($result);
            
   echo "REQUEST:\n" . $client->__getLastRequest() . "\n";
            
?>

Finally here is a link to documentation for the API.

Hi rwterp,

I'm guessing you're not getting any type of response back from your request?

If it's using the WSDL, have you tried something like this:

$username = "";
$password = "";
$company_name = "";
$object_type = 2;
$keys = array("fname","lname","phone");
$values = array("Bob","Roberts","555-555-5555");

$client = new SoapClient($wsdl, array('trace' => 1));
$result = $client->CreateEntity($username,$password,$company_name,$object_type,$keys,$values);

// You can put the test and such around this and var_dump the results.

Note, I haven't tested this and it may take some tweaking.

Hope it helps,
Pete

Pete,

Actually I am getting a response. I tried your suggestion although in a slightly different fashion and it seems to have resolved the problem. Unfortunately it introduced another problem. I'm receiving this response from the SOAP Server

string(63) "Conversion from type 'XmlNode()' to type 'String' is not valid."
 
  $KeyList    = array("phone", "fname", "lname" ,"area id","lead id","contactdate");

  $ValueList  = array("9495551212","james","bond","1","2","9/19/2010");


   $parameters['parameters']['strUsername']     = "";
   $parameters['parameters']['strPassword']     = "";
   $parameters['parameters']['strCompanyName']  = "";
   $parameters['parameters']['objecttype']      = 2;
   $parameters['parameters']['keys']            = $KeyList  ;
   $parameters['parameters']['values']          = $ValueList  ;
