    We get request frequently to refresh/reset the wsdl as developer makes changes to the wsdl on backend system.


    So, instead of manually resetting the wsdl in the policy manager, is there any API available to refresh/reset the wsdl so that we could call the API from any build tool as soon as new wsdl is deployed in the backend system.

    The most appropriate tool for this is UDDI (Universal Description Discovery and Integration). This technology allows the Gateway to subscribe to a repository and dynamically update the WSDL on-the-fly.

The documentation for this capability can be found here: Manage UDDI Registries - CA API Gateway - 8.4 - CA Wiki.


    You can manually modify the WSDL as a policy owner or administrator using the procedure documented here:
