SOAP Permissions when accessing SharePoint Webservices

SOAP Permissions when accessing SharePoint Webservices

SOAP Permissions when accessing SharePoint Webservices

Hello, I hope someone can help me.

I have been asked to investigate using SOAP to pull data from a SharePoint library.  I am falling at the first hurdle.

I have installed soapUI 3.5 and created a project to connect to http://SharePointServerName/_vti_bin/Lists.asmx?WSDL

When I try and use my credentials with this it just sits there.

I have full administrative control over SharePoint and the SharePoint server.

My boss who doesn't have any admin rights on the SharePoint server can connect straight away with his credentials. But then can't run any queries.

What I am trying to find out and have failed with google searches is where I would set permissions for SOAP.  I have looked at the permissions on the actual folders under wwwroot and in IIS but am at a loss.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.


RE: SOAP Permissions when accessing SharePoint Webservices

SOAP has not "permissions", I think this is more a SharePoint issue, you should ask in a SharePoint forum providing the exact error messages you're getting.

Thanks for the reply.  I have resolved the issue now.  It was the software I was trying to use that had the issues.  I found some other freeware that works fine now.
