How to consume a SOAP WebService from QlikView Extenssion

Firstly, please excuse me for my bad english... I'll try to write correctly.

Here is my project : I use a WebService for some years. This WS need SOAP (XML) datas in entry. I have some code for create SOAP datas correctly and consume the AJAX response. I't s working on my PHP-Apache platform. I use JavaScript in client-side

Now, I would to call the same WebService from QlikView. I have read that is possible.

I created a static extenssion to familiarize a bit myself with QlikView and JS-API. And now, I would to use my WebService.

So let's go : this is my Script.js :

var wsurl = "http://imagin.heptago.com/imaginserver/ws/generateAdHocImageWS";

var wsurl_get = Qva.Remote + "?public=only&name=http://imagin.heptago.com/imaginserver/ws/generateAdHocImageWS";

var html = ""; // the html body of the extenssion.

Qva.AddExtension('CallImaging', function() {

    Qva.LoadScript(Qva.Remote + "?public=only&name=Extensions\Objects\HelloWorld\jquery.js" , function() {

        alert("jQuery up"); // work!


    html += "<p>A QlikView Extenssion that call a WebService</p>";

    var soapBody = soapData('login','pwd','portfolioName','serviceName', 'name', 'value');

    //html += convertForShow(soapBody); // soap body ok!


        type: "post",

        url: wsurl_get,

        data: soapBody,

        async : false, 

        success: function( msg ){



        error: function(XMLHttpRequest,textStatus, errorThrown){

          alert("error : " + textStatus + "\nerrorThrown : " + errorThrown);



    html += "<p>Call finished</p>";

    this.Element.innerHTML = html;


And it's doesn't work. In this case, $ajax fall in error. But the message is not very explicit :

error : error

errorThrown : undefined

But the static text in <p> appears.

If I use the url wsurl instead, on post method too, I have nothing. No error message, no static text (extenssion panel stay blank).

By the way, I tried the all 4 combinations :

  • Post + wsurl = nothing ;
  • Post + wsurl_get = error message shown above ;
  • Get + wsurl = nothing ;
  • Get + wsurl_get = QlikView crash (...).

I'm turning around in two weeks. I have soon no hair on my head.

That's why I solicits your help.

Thanks you in advance.


PS: I use QlikView 11.
