Connecting to a SOAP Web Service

Good afternoon everyone!


I am attempting to make a connection to the Mindbody API using Power BI. Their API is a SOAP web service, and while I know that SOAP isn’t fully supported by Power BI (as REST is), I was wondering if there was a way to create a custom connection using M.


I’ve tried sampling components of Chris Webb’s technique outlined here (the Web.Contents method), but haven’t had any luck. I’ve also tried following along with the Power BI forum post here, but wasn’t able to make any headway.


Has anyone successfully queried a SOAP web service? Could I set up an intermediary connection over something to then query into Power BI (this is a total guess)?

Have you tried to create XML file (poste.xml) for the SOAP web service as JasonL's post in this similar thread? You can use XML.Tables() function to load data from SOAP source to Power BI Desktop.
