Connecting through PHP

Connecting through PHP

This article provides sample PHP code that allows you to connect to the WebServices API (SOAP). The connection is done using a Zend Http Client.

Thanks to eternalcage.eu and Tomáš Friedrich for providing the sample code.

Request Method

This method sends a general request to the SOAP API.

Request

protected function ProcessRequest( $assembly, $soapAction, $function, $xml, $debug = false)
{
    // initialize the client for the SOAP call
    $client = new Zend_Http_Client($this->_config['host'].$assembly);
    $client->setAuth( $this->_config['user'], $this->_config['password']);
    $client->setHeaders("SOAPAction", $soapAction.$function);
    $client->setRawData($xml, 'text/xml; charset=utf-8');

    // send request and receive a response
    $response = $client->request("POST");
    
    // ...
}
