Adding WS-Addressing to a security configuration

The WS-Addressing specification provides transport-neutral mechanisms that enable SOAP-based web services to communicate addressing information. You can use WSDL security algorithms to add WS-Addressing to your service tests.

Before you begin

Before adding WS-Addressing to a security configuration, you must have a service test with requests and responses that are related to a valid WSDL.


To add WS-Addressing to a WSDL security algorithm:

  1. Open the test, select a service request, and in the Raw Transaction Data view, select Enable the display of the XML document after the security processing.
  2. On the Request Stack page, click Edit WSDL Security Edit WSDL Security.
    Tip: If you need to edit separate security or processing algorithms for incoming responses, click Show Response Stack to add a Response Stack page to the editor.
    The WSDL security editor opens.
  3. Select the Algorithm Stacks page of the WSDL security editor, and in the Security Algorithm list, select or create a security algorithm.
  4. In the Stack Contents list, click Add > WS-Addressing and specify the settings that are implemented by the service.
    WS-Addressing Algorithm
    Use this block if your service uses either WS-Addressing 2004/08 or the WS-Addressing 1.0 Core standard.
    Specify the namespace for either WS-Addressing 2004/08 or WS-Addressing 1.0 Core.
    Action if request uses WS-Addressing
    Select the action to complete if WS-Addressing is already in the request.
    Replace anonymous address in Reply-to with:
    Select this option to generate the specified address in the Reply-to header instead of an anonymous address.
    Remove WS-Addressing from response
    Select this option to strip any WS-Addressing headers from the response.
  5. Save the WSDL security algorithm, and select the test editor. The WS-Addressing namespace and header XML content is displayed in the Raw Transaction Data view.
