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'.


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


Unsupported feature in Dollar Universe 6.10 and inferior versions.


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
