Making a SOAP Call using a local file instead of a URL

[ Edited ]

I am trying to make a PROC SOAP call from SAS using a saved file instead of a URL. The reason for this is firewall/proxy issues calling some of the "w3" websites. The xml from the WSDL is saved to a text file with a ."wsdl" extension and the problematic URLs are replaced with ".xsd" files stored in the same directory.

This solution does work when testing in SOAP UI 5.2 , but the challenge I am having is getting SAS to reference the local file saved to SAMGW instead of using the URL. Has anyone had any experience with this? Below is the code I am trying to use. The statement in bold is the problematic part. The SOAP Envelope is contained in the REQUEST.xml file referenced in the first line of code.

 

filename REQUEST "samplefilepath/REQUEST.xml" ; 
filename RESPONSE "samplefilepath/RESPONSE.xml" ;

proc soap in=REQUEST
out=RESPONSE
URL="samplefilepath/ChangeRiskModel2.wsdl" /*this is the line I am trying to figure out. Instead of using a URL I need it to reference a static file
soapaction="http://urltowsdl"
WEBUSERNAME="xxxxxx"
WEBPASSWORD="xxxxxx";
run;

I think you need to use a comment such as /* <=== This line is the problem line */

as the posted code doesn't show any bold text.

I am guessing here but if your URL would generally be http:// <etc> I might try Url= "file://<local path>"

Thanks, that helped! I also found that I had reversed my URL and SOAPAction. It seems now that the PROC SOAP command is connecting but  I am seeing an issue with the SOAP Envelope now. The envelope works in SOAPUI 5.2 but the same envelope returns an error - 

 

<SOAP-ENV:Fault xmlns:SOAP-ENV="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"><faultcode>SOAP-ENV:Server</faultcode><faultstring>A CXmlApiException was raised in native code : error 16 : scxmlapi(16) - Invalid or missing file name in XML request</faultstring><faultactor>Server</faultactor></SOAP-ENV:Fault>

 

Anyone know a way around this? Details of the envelope I am using below: 

<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:ns="http://schemas.hp.com/SM/7" xmlns:com="http://schemas.hp.com/SM/7/Common" xmlns:c="file:///c:\dev\xmlmime">
