I created a new user in System > Web Services > SOAP/XML-RPC - Users.

I created a new project in SoapUI.

Opened login > Request 1 and filled it in:

<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:urn="urn:Magento">

This is the response:

<SOAP-ENV:Envelope xmlns:SOAP-ENV="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
         <faultstring>SOAP-ERROR: Parsing WSDL: Couldn't load from 'http://local.test.dev/index.php/api/v2_soap/index/?wsdl=1' : failed to load external entity "http://local.test.dev/index.php/api/v2_soap/index/?wsdl=1"</faultstring>

I guess that you're running Magento in kind of VM (vagrant/vm). The problem here is the fact that Magento is trying to load WSDL by hitting itself.

Regarding that, if local.test.dev is not set in /etc/hosts of the linux box that you're using, then it is the reason why it fails to you. So, just SSH to that machine, and add local.test.dev, and it should be okay.

  • Now I got <faultcode>2</faultcode> <faultstring>Access denied.</faultstring>
