How to generate requests to run Introscope Webservices API?

Solution:

SoapUI is a 3rd party tool that can be used for this purpose.

  1. on SoapUI, please input this wsdl URL: (example is for MetricsDataService)

    http://<host>:<port>/introscope-web-services/services/MetricsDataService?wsdl

    Per the following instructions:
    http://www.soapui.org/SOAP-and-WSDL/working-with-wsdls.html

    Please enable "create sample requests for all operations".

  2. please click "Auth" for Authentification at the bottom of the middle pane. Please enter the username/password for any user that has access to the APM EM environment.

  3. SoapUI will parse the wsdl for you and if relevant options selected will automatically create requests for each Operation. Click on "Request1" under the relevant operation node on the left pane. On the XML on the middle pane, replace the question marks with valid values, and output values will be shown on the pane on the far right.

Please see screenshots in the attachment for more details.
