We plan to use the SharePoint Online with Nintex Form and Workflow for Office 365, and want to know if Nintex workflow for office 365 is able to call external web services which are in SOAP format? Any sample, guide to do so?
You should use "Web Request" action and fill in mandatory data.
Here you can find additional information how to use it:
I didn't used it to call external web services, yet. But I already used it to call the sharepoint online web services with using it in SOAP format.
Therefore I don't see an issue, why it shouldn't work also external web services.
This is directly related for using it in Nintex Workflow and I think the easy part.
A different story is to call an web service within the Nintex Forms context, because those are running within an iFrame which makes it a bit more tricky, but also possible. (cross domain communication)
Hope it helps
We need to call the external web service within Nintex form context, not from the workflow, but I find no hints to do so. Can you tell how to do that or any reference?
