I can't find a good example anywhere of how to use postman application for testing the Magento 1.9 SOAP Api. The REST Api is not enough for my needs.

I have tried a POST request using https://example.com/api/v2_soap?wsdl=1 as the URL, and in the body : raw , XML ( text/xml ) .

<SOAP-ENV:Envelope xmlns:SOAP-ENV="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
        <MAGE:login xmlns:MAGE="http://example.com/api/v2_soap/?wsdl=1">

And the response is just the WDSL page. I'm a bit baffled by that and have tried various combinations of removing the ?wsdl=1 parameter .

This looks like some odd request XML, but I suspect the main issue is posting data to a URL that includes wsdl=1.

Try posting to https://example.com/api/v2_soap

This is the XML I use, which I know works in case there is also an XML issue: <soapenv:Envelope xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:urn="urn:Magento"> <soapenv:Header/> <soapenv:Body> <urn:login soapenv:encodingStyle="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/"> <username xsi:type="xsd:string">{{username}}</username> <apiKey xsi:type="xsd:string">{{apiKey}}</apiKey> </urn:login>
</soapenv:Body> </soapenv:Envelope>
