Web Services SOAP API

Web Services (SOAP) API

The WebService API is a low-level programming interface used to directly access data objects and sequential workflows in your ORIGAM application.

Your application developer might provide special RESTful methods for your applications. Use web services only if you cannot achieve the desired functionality by an API provided to you by your developer.

Communication Protocol

All ORIGAM Web API services are available using a standard WebService communication protocol (i.e. TCP/IP, HTTP, SOAP stack).


Service access is secured by

  • Authentization and
  • Authorization


Authentization depends on the configuration of your IIS server. It can be configured to Anonymous, Standard Authentication or Windows Authentication.


All calls to web service methods automatically take over the authorization settings of your ORIGAM Runtime installation. The authenticated user has only access to those methods and objects assigned in his role list.
