Try commenting out the foreach in vendor/magento/framework/Webapi/Authorization.php ( line 36 to 40 )

Should look like this:

public function isAllowed($aclResources)
    //foreach ($aclResources as $resource) {
    //    if (!$this->authorization->isAllowed($resource)) {
    //        return false;
    //    }
    return true;

I had the same problem, this fixed it.

  • I think we should allow resource from the integration section of API resources. That would do the magic! Jul 5, 2018 at 10:11

perhaps you have a error or a missed configuration on permissions,

to check the WSDL comment this line in "Magento\Webapi\Model\AbstractSchemaGenerator":

protected function getAllowedServicesMetadata($requestedServices)
    $allowedServicesMetadata = [];
    foreach ($requestedServices as $serviceName) {
        $serviceMetadata = $this->getServiceMetadata($serviceName);
        foreach ($serviceMetadata[ServiceMetadata::KEY_SERVICE_METHODS] as $methodName => $methodData) {
            if (!$this->authorization->isAllowed($methodData[ServiceMetadata::KEY_ACL_RESOURCES])) { 

            //    unset($serviceMetadata[ServiceMetadata::KEY_SERVICE_METHODS][$methodName]);
        if (!empty($serviceMetadata[ServiceMetadata::KEY_SERVICE_METHODS])) {
            $allowedServicesMetadata[$serviceName] = $serviceMetadata;
    return $allowedServicesMetadata;

I tried the SOAP Web Services on my local host and it was working fine. The reason why the Magento 2 was not able to give a response to the request was because it was not able to verify SSL Certificates enabled on the site.

The way I resolved it was to allow self signed SSL verification:

$opts = [
    'http' =>
         'header' => "Authorization: Bearer ".$token
'ssl' => [
    'allow_self_signed' => true , 
    'verify_peer' => false, 
    'verify_peer_name' => false]
$context = stream_context_create($opts);

I hope it helps. ;)
