I am quite a beginner in Adobe Campaign and was wondering how to interact with Adobe Campaign via SOAP webservices. I do know that Campaign exposes its API via SOAP web services and we need be authenticated via Logon method to access those services. (Best practice)
What I wanted to know is that which user name password do we use for the LOGON method in the SOAP call ?
I tried the logon credentials to the client console. But I am not sure if these are the credentials I should be using. Please let me know the answer. Sorry - if it is a very very silly/basic question.
FYI : We are using Adobe Campaign Classic and our Campaign instance is hosted on a sandbox and we use a client console to connect.

Referring to your initial screenshot, you have provided login and password into the request but the sessiontoken node contains a "?" which get added there by default as part of SOAPUI request creation.
Please empty it and try again.
I hope I understand the question correctly, but a SOAP call really has two stages 1) Make a call to logon method to get session/security tokens and 2) Make a call with those tokens against the web service you wish to interact with.
In the screenshot you have, you can pass in your own credentials, the same ones you would use to login to the rich desktop client (although for production there is a dedicated 'Web Service Agent' logon that only has access to the platform via api. For soap ui you can use your own user.
The first logon method (the one displayed in your image) will return you something like this:
Both of the returned tokens can then be used in your next soap call.
Does that help? If you need further help please reach out.

Thanks for all this information Dan. Unfortunately even after allowing the IP address entries, I am still getting the connection denied error. I think the second route which you mentioned in your reply could over ride my entries.
You need to whitelist the IP addresses you are calling from. You can do this two ways:
1. In the rich client; you can navigate to the operator area and add your ip:
Click on edit the access parameters and then 'add trusted ips' and add your ip in there.
The second route, its updating your security zones but i wouldn't recommend this route tbh.
Thanks for the reply. I tried the credentials for the desktop client already. Are you aware if we need some whitelisting for this on the campaign side ? As I am getting a denier error 403.
Here is the error message.
