The problem is likely related to canonization of the SOAP message when the SPM tracers process the SOAP header for parsing/inserting correlation ID. Even though the resulting SOAP messages were semantically the same as the original ones except for correlation ID, the changes in the SOAP message syntax and/or addition of correlation ID element could trigger validation failure if strict security check rule was adopted. 


There are few things that you can try:

OPTION 1 - Disabling SOAP Correlation tracing
1) Back up existing tibcobw-toggles-typical.pbd.
2) Disable SOAPCorrelationTracing in tibcobw-toggles-typical.pbd by commenting out :
#TurnOn: SOAPCorrelationTracing 

3) Restart the monitored application and see If the problem persist.

OPTION 2 - Disabling Axis correlation tracing
1) Release the option 1 disabled.
2) Back up existing spm-correlation.pbd. 
3) Disable Axis1ClientCorrelationTracing and Axis1ServerCorrelationTracing in spm-correlation.pbd by commenting out: 
#TurnOn: Axis1ClientCorrelationTracing 
#TurnOn: Axis1ServerCorrelationTracing 

4) Restart the monitored application and see If the problem persist.

OPTION 3 - Changing the header insertion to HTTP
1) Locate your Agent.Profile
2) Add below properties and set to false:

Additional Information

This is a known limitation with using SOAP header insertion for correlation ID and the HTTP header insertion option is provided as the alternative configuration to work around such limitation.
