Connect Web Services for SOAP

Catching Requests Rejected by the F5 Security Module

The F5 is a security layer that filters all incoming and outgoing traffic to any site hosted on the PS pod. Yes, all traffic. If it sees anything it doesn't like, based on some secure, cryptic string parsing rules, it will reject the entire request, kick back a 503 error (for some reason), and puke out an ugly HTML page with a long support ID.

Setting custom fields via SOAP

This goes under the "seriously?!!" heading.

In previous version of the WSDL it was fairly simple to set a custom field. I'd even go as far as easy (though "intuitive" isn't even part of the language used by the twisted minds who created this API), but with the addition of custom attributes they decided to confuse custom fields as well.

Creating AddIns using Connect Web Services (CWS)

While the AddIn Framework provides a decent amount of information about the site you're connected to it often isn't enough to do anything too complicated.

This tutorial will demonstrate how to connect to CWS through the GlobalContext and retrieve account information about the current user. While a slightly contrived example it also provides information not available through the AddIn Framework.
