Getting the SOAP Envelope of the request/response messages in Oracle SOA Suite


Getting the SOAP Envelope of the request/response messages in Oracle SOA Suite

This post will explain how to Get the SOAP Envelope of the request/response messages in Oracle SOA Suite 11g or Oracle SOA Suite 12c(screen will be little different in Oracle SOA Suite 12c )

The bpelx:inputHeaderVariable and bpelx:outputHeaderVariable attributes in invoke/receive activity will help us to add or retrieve the custom SOAP headers to SOAP message in oracle SOA.

If you want to see the whole SOAP message (header & body) it’s not possible out-of-the-box on the EM Console or in the logs.

 Steps to capture complete SOAP conversations for a SOA composite service

  • Open the Composite.xml
  • Attach the management policy named oracle/log_policy to the webservice reference to which the SOAP headers needs to be monitored. 


  • Redeploy the composite.
  • Check the below log file to view the SOAP messages whenever the webservice call is made.$DOMAIN_HOME/domain_name/servers/mserver_name/logs/owsm/msglogging/diagnostic.log

  2. This is really useful. But I did not see any message written to the diagnostic.log. It is empty for me. Not sure how to enable or what setting i need to change to be able to write to the log?

  4. can you verify the log level from weblogic console? It should be Debug level to see the message.
