The SOAP/XML Client feature allows you to display all Client Profiles available in the system and to add, edit and delete Client Profiles.
The SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) Server is an integrated component of the Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony whose function is to handle provisioning requests for subscriber, endpoint, and business group data, including the creation, deletion, modification, and display of these entities and their associated features, or services.
The SOAP Server expects SOAP/XML requests conforming to the SOAP Server WSDL (Web Services Definition Language) file, which is included as a product deliverable and is made available to external interface partners. In particular, the Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony Assistant uses this interface to transmit provisioning requests from the user to the Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony system.
Client Profiles are created by defining security and the authorizations that are needed to access SOAP methods. Security is implemented by using TLS on the specific range of ports 8757 through 8766 on the switch. Any input coming on these ports will be secured by TLS. Authorization is achieved by defining the Client Profile for each SOAP Client IP address.
