It is impossible to add a SOAP Webservice in Dollar Universe Manager for Web Services in case the wsdl is protected and requires a User / Password to be able to download it.

The error that appears in the Univiewer Console is:

Error while loading WSDL for service WEBSERVICE_NAME. The error is: WSDLException (at /html): faultCode=INVALID_WSDL: Expected element '{}definitions'.


Unsupported feature in Dollar Universe 6.10 and inferior versions.


Component : Dollar Universe Manager for Web Services (JEE) 6.9x and superior


Unsupported feature, the manager for Web Services cannot retrieve wsdl file if a username and password is necessary to download the wsdl file.

As a workaround you can download locally the wsdl file and then copy it into the Dollar Universe folder to be able to use it inside the SOAP Uprocs:

- Copy the wsdl file in " <duas_folder>\thirdparty\soap_wsdl\SOAP_WS_NAME" 

- Modify the file " <duas_folder>\data\data_java\ws_soap_services.xml" 

- Stop and Start JEE service
