ST/UFT support tip: How to Modify A SOAP Security Header at Runtime

It is possible to modify the security header of a SOAP request at runtime using the "AfterProcessRequestSecurity" event handler.


Given the following SOAP envelope:

<Envelope xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope">
<wsse:Security xmlns:wsse="http://docs.oasis-open.org/wss/2004/01/oasis-200401-wss-wssecurity-secext-1.0.xsd">
<wsse:UsernameToken xmlns:wsu="http://docs.oasis-open.org/wss/2004/01/oasis-200401-wss-wssecurity-utility-1.0.xsd" wsu:Id="SecurityToken-5236f4b9-aa81-497e-812c-b975e0c8feb2">
<wsse:Password Type="http://docs.oasis-open.org/wss/2004/01/oasis-200401-wss-username-token-profile-1.0#PasswordText">****</wsse:Password>
<HelloWorld xmlns="http://www.hp.com/" />



This example will change the Username of the security header. There are two ways to approach this. One is a direct string find and replace, the other is through the XML API.

public void StServiceCallActivity10_OnAfterProcessRequestSecurity(object sender, HP.ST.Ext.WebServicesActivities.ActivityProcessXmlMessageEventArgs args)
// these two lines demonstrate how to perform a string replace
//String s = args.Message.InnerXml.Replace("<wsse:Username>adam</wsse:Username>", "<wsse:Username>New Name</wsse:Username>");
//args.Message.InnerXml = s;

// modify the XML using an XML API
XmlDocument xmlDocument = args.Message;
XmlNamespaceManager xmlnsManager = new XmlNamespaceManager(xmlDocument.NameTable);
xmlnsManager.AddNamespace("wsse", "http://docs.oasis-open.org/wss/2004/01/oasis-200401-wss-wssecurity-secext-1.0.xsd");
xmlnsManager.AddNamespace("wsu", "http://docs.oasis-open.org/wss/2004/01/oasis-200401-wss-wssecurity-utility-1.0.xsd");
xmlDocument.SelectSingleNode("//wsse:Username", xmlnsManager).InnerText = "New Name";
args.Message = xmlDocument;
