I saw similar post but did not want to hijack it. I am working on a project where I will need to access documents using SOAP or REST. Where can I get a guide describing how to use SOAP with Techdoc? I've seen the WSDL. Also we use Single Sign on, but was wondering if I use REST / URL interface can I send a username / password to authenticate my request since an Automated system might not be able authenticate using SSO.

The SOAP usage is pretty standard, so there isn't a guide. The WSDL(s) can be consumed easily in Java or C#. After consumption, you can simply construct a channel, add your security and begin making calls. Adding a username token is pretty straight forward, but SSO based login can be quite a bit more complex depending on how and where you want to obtain your SAML authentication statement.

We have example projects in Java and C#. If you can provide us with a little more information about the language, services and security you wish to use we can better assist you.

We are using C#. I'm assuming that I would need a Username and password setup in techdoc and not go through single sign on for this.

I found where we are using Process XML Request to upload documents. Where can I find more info on this for the Required XML format and other actions besides Upload.

Yes we have documentation for the BDL protocol as well; I'll email you the information on that protocol directly. If you are still interested in SOAP we can send that demo project as well. Please look for my email and we'll try and get a better understanding of your specific use case to better assist you.

Thank You, I will keep an eye out for your email. I've started putting together a SOAP app for testing so demo project would be helpful.
