The option to communicate with external systems is a cool feature to have in any platform. In Adobe Campaign, daily updates from external systems are made via a CSV or TXT file. But what if we want to push real-time data to Adobe Campaign, and more specifically to the recipient table? Then we have to make use of SOAP web services.
SOAP methods and SOAP calls can seem tricky to master if you are new to them. Adobe has some documentation but unfamiliarity with XML can cause you to stumble. Being new to Adobe Campaign, you might be new to XML as well because most of the recent developments had a JSON and REST inclination. Also, you may not find documentation that explains all those steps you need to know about web service calls in one place.
I hope to break down some of it for you in this article, particularly how you can call Adobe Campaign SOAP APIs using a client app like Postman.
