Configuring Web Service Connections

The TaskCentre Server contains the functionality to connect and use web enabled product API’s.

The Web Service Connector is used to call a web service operation and return the response from the web service as data content which can be used in the task.

It is capable of working with a very wide range of services, both SOAP and REST architectures. These services may be business applications, hosted locally, at a remote location or in the cloud, such as ERP, Financial or CRM systems or they could be information services provided on the internet.
