Soap service vs schema validation

  • 1.  Soap service vs schema validation

    Posted Jul 07, 2017 10:25 AM

    Hi ,


    I'm working on CA API Gateway using the policy manager and was wondering about SOAP services schema validation...


    If I expose a SOAP/WSDL based service, is it relevant to use the "Validate XML Schema" assertion inside?

    Does the service natively do the same type of verification as the assertion would do because it's exposed as a Soap service?


    Also, how does this validation work when using UDDI update on SOAP services exposition?


    Thanks for the help,

    Hello Guillaume,

    CA API Gateway doesn't do the schema validation natively if you don't include the "Validate XML Schema" assertion in your policy.


    From the best practices perspective, It is recommended to perform schema validation.
