Summary of Web Service URLs

This topic summarizes the URLs related to an InterSystems IRIS® data platform web service.

Web Service URLs

The URLs related to an InterSystems IRIS web service are as follows:

end point for the web service


  • <baseURL> is the base URL for your instance.

  • /csp/namespace is the name of the web application in which the web service resides.

  • web_serv is the class name of the web service.

For example:


For example:


Note that both of these URLs are part of the /csp/namespace web application.

Using a Password-Protected WSDL URL

You can use the WSDL URL of an existing InterSystems IRIS web service to create a web client in InterSystems IRIS or a third-party tool. However, if the parent web application for the web service requires password authentication, you must supply a valid username and password in the WSDL URL to access the WSDL. To do so, you append &IRISUsername=username&IRISPassword=password to the URL, for example:


Additionally, if you use a third-party tool to create the web client and the tool uses URL redirection after logins, you must append &IRISNoRedirect=1. For example, after a login, .NET performs a URL redirect. Consequently, the WSDL URL format for a .NET web client is as follows:


If you are unable to generate a web client from a password-protected WSDL URL after several attempts, consider the following alternatives:

  • Retrieve the WSDL from a browser by supplying a valid username and password, save the WSDL as a file, and use the file to generate the web client.

  • If the web service must provide continuous access to the WSDL, create a web application that is not password protected to serve the WSDL.

  • If there is a legacy application that uses CSP/ZEN to serve the WSDL and its Prevent login CSRF attack setting is enabled, then temporarily disable the setting if you determine that it is safe to do so.
