An Overview of SOAP APIs and Web Services 2.0

This topic discusses Web Services 2.0. For information on Web Services 1.0, see Web Services 1.0.

OVERVIEW

A FullAccess user can:

An outside application can use SOAP messages and web services to interact with CPQ Cloud and take advantage of its features.

CPQ Cloud supports SOAP APIs for the purpose of uploading large amounts of system data; system data can be sent through a client program to CPQ Cloud.

To send information to CPQ Cloud:

  1. Data is sent from a client program to a CPQ Cloud API server and modifies data in CPQ Cloud.
  2. The client program gets the result of the API call with a status field, including pass or fail.

Using a SOAP API, you can perform useful tasks such as updating parts and commerce information. This can replace using FTP clients or the CPQ Cloud interface to upload and download data.
