SOAP Request build with PHP

Hi Guys,

I have .net service which needs to be connected via PHP. the sample SOAP envelop is below
 
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<ObjectActionRequest xmlns="http://www.something.com/types/" xmlns:i="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
  <Action>Create</Action>
  <ObjectInstanceId>0</ObjectInstanceId>

    <AttributeSets>
      <AttributeSetDto>
        <Attributes>
          <AttributeDto>
            <AttributeId>3020</AttributeId>
            <AttributeInstanceId>0</AttributeInstanceId>
            <AttributeSetId>4</AttributeSetId>
            <DataType i:nil="true" />
            <DisplayText i:nil="true" />

            <Name i:nil="true" />
            <OriginalValue i:nil="true" />

            <Value xmlns:a="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" i:type="a:string">47</Value>
          </AttributeDto>
          <AttributeDto>
            <AttributeId>3021</AttributeId>
            <AttributeInstanceId>0</AttributeInstanceId>
            <AttributeSetId>4</AttributeSetId>

I need to pass multiple attribures to finish the request.
I got below code working which allows me to pass one attribute at a time. I am not sure how can i pass multiple attributes in one request so it generates similar envelop as above.

below is my sample php code which allows me to pass one parameter where attributeid=3020 but i also needs to pass attributeid 3021 and may be some more in future.
  $params1->request->Action = 'Create';
  $params1->request->ObjectInstanceId = 0;
  $params1->request->AttributeSets=new stdClass;
  $params1->request->AttributeSets->AttributeSetDto=new stdClass;
  $params1->request->AttributeSets->AttributeSetDto->ObjectId=0;
  $params1->request->AttributeSets->AttributeSetDto->ObjectInstId=0;
  $params1->request->AttributeSets->AttributeSetDto->SetId=4;
  $params1->request->ObjectType= new stdClass;
  $params1->request->ObjectType->DataType=2;
  $params1->request->AttributeSets->AttributeSetDto->Attributes= new stdClass;
  $params1->request->AttributeSets->AttributeSetDto->Attributes->AttributeDto= new stdClass;
  $params1->request->AttributeSets->AttributeSetDto->Attributes->AttributeDto= new stdClass;
  $params1->request->AttributeSets->AttributeSetDto->Attributes->AttributeDto->AttributeId=3020;
  $params1->request->AttributeSets->AttributeSetDto->Attributes->AttributeDto->AttributeInstanceId=0;
  $params1->request->AttributeSets->AttributeSetDto->Attributes->AttributeDto->AttributeSetId=4;

  $typedVar = new SoapVar("47", XSD_STRING, "int", "http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema");

  $params1->request->AttributeSets->AttributeSetDto->Attributes->AttributeDto->Value = $typedVar;
  $res =  $this->ObjectAction($params1);

To clarify. You said

 need to pass multiple attribures to finish the request.
I got below code working which allows me to pass one attribute at a time.

What do you mean by multiple attributes - and passing one attribute at a time. Your code (PHP) seems to be setting multiple attributes or are you talking about <Attribute> elements within the XML SOAP request?

I would imagine the way to solve this would be to have an array of attributes but without seeing how the rest of your PHP code works difficult to say how to do that.

i want to pass multiple <AttributeDto> with all properties.

from line 8 to 41 is my soap sample which has multiple <AttributeDto>. i have included only 2 but there may be up to 20 <AttributeDto>

in my php code from line 10 to 15 i have passed one of the <AttributeDto> values using creating object.

Julian HansenCommented:
Sounds like you will need to create an array of objects - if the SOAP calling mechanism supports that.

do you have sample code even just 2-3 lines to show me how to create array of object for soap request

Julian HansenCommented:
Not without knowing how your code works

This line seems to pass the created object - which includes a SoapVar to the ObjectAction method - not familiar with that can you post more code?
$res =  $this->ObjectAction($params1);

Sorry guys for late response as i was away sick.

Above is my SOAP sample and below is my complete PHP code

$params1->request->Action = 'Create';

		$params1->request->ObjectInstanceId = 0;


		$params1->request->AttributeSets=new stdClass;

		$params1->request->AttributeSets->AttributeSetDto=new stdClass;

		$params1->request->AttributeSets->AttributeSetDto->ObjectId=0;

		$params1->request->AttributeSets->AttributeSetDto->ObjectInstId=0;


		$params1->request->AttributeSets->AttributeSetDto->SetId=4;

		$params1->request->ObjectType= new stdClass;

		$params1->request->ObjectType->DataType=2;



		$params1->request->AttributeSets->AttributeSetDto->Attributes= new stdClass;

		$params1->request->AttributeSets->AttributeSetDto->Attributes->AttributeDto= new stdClass;

		$params1->request->AttributeSets->AttributeSetDto->Attributes->AttributeDto= new stdClass;

		$params1->request->AttributeSets->AttributeSetDto->Attributes->AttributeDto->AttributeId=3020;

		$params1->request->AttributeSets->AttributeSetDto->Attributes->AttributeDto->AttributeInstanceId=0;

		$params1->request->AttributeSets->AttributeSetDto->Attributes->AttributeDto->AttributeSetId=4;
		$typedVar = new SoapVar("47", XSD_STRING, "int", "http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema");

		$params1->request->AttributeSets->AttributeSetDto->Attributes->AttributeDto->Value = $typedVar;

		$res =  $this->ObjectAction($params1);

below is the c# code which i am trying to convert to PHP. it's a different soap envelope but has similar structure.

var set11 = new AttributeSetDto
{
SetId = 11,
Attributes = new List<AttributeDto> {
new AttributeDto { Value = “Sort_Name”, AttributeId = 1, AttributeSetId = 11 },
new AttributeDto { Value = "LastName", AttributeId = 715, AttributeSetId = 11 },
new AttributeDto { Value = "phone", AttributeId = 708, AttributeSetId = 11 },
new AttributeDto { Value = 42, AttributeId = 30, AttributeSetId = 11}
}
};

PHP code is same snippet as before - it does not tell us what this does

  $res =  $this->ObjectAction($params1); 

Open in new window


This is the key - how does the ObjecAction method deal with the $params1 parameter.
