I added a service to my project in visual basic to connect to soap api of magento. The connection seems to work but in my wsdl I havn't got the handler Mage_Api_Model_Server_V2_Handler. So I can't use it.

<service name="MagentoService">
<port name="Port" binding="typens:Binding">
<soap:address location="http://example.com/index.php/api/v2_soap/index/"/></port></service>

What I wrong?


A library to help when working with .net and Magento's API:

Also be sure to enable WS-I compliance:

You may also want to try to disable WSDL Caching as well.

  • It didn't solve my problem. I have port name without handler "Mage_Api_Model_Server_V2_Handler" – laura Apr 19 '16 at 10:48

I know this question is old, but today I went through this problem. I could not figure it out, but I got it fixed. I'll explain and maybe someone more experienced can understand what's going on.

in Mage_Api_Model_Server we have the following function:

public function run()

The return of this function is an instance of Mage_Api_Model_Server_V2_Adapter_Soap and if we debug it we will get the following result:

public function run()
    echo $this->getAdapter()->getHandler();

output: 'Mage_Api_Model_Server_V2_Handler'

So far so good, but if we go in Mage_Api_Model_Server_V2_Adapter_Soap in the run() method and give an echo in $this->getHandler() we get a null return.

So, since getHandler does not work, in the _getWsdlConfig () method, I made a small change. not a solution, just could not find the root of the problem and that's how I found it to not break the API. If anyone knows the solution to the problem I am very grateful


protected function _getWsdlConfig()
    $wsdlConfig = Mage::getModel('api/wsdl_config');
    return $wsdlConfig;

Before they comment, I did not change the core. I rewrote the method
