How to set http-headrar before a wsdl-definition is retrieved


I have a problem, I need to retrieve a wsdl-definition with an url-address i order to create a SOAP-project, eg.



the problem is that I need to set a couple of HTTP-headrar that contains a "ticket" in order to grant access to the server. I cannot find a way to do this in SOAP-ui, you can set HTTP-headrar in restrospect, but I need to sett the http-headrar before I can retrieve the wsdl-definition. 


It should be a solution to this.

    My best understanding of question is how to set a header...


    In some groovy script that sets property values in a "Properties" named test step, set the desired header content:

       def xrequestid = UUID.randomUUID().toString();
       testRunner.testCase.testSteps["Properties"].setPropertyValue( "x-request-id-value-str", xrequestid);

       def xclientType = 'admin';
       testRunner.testCase.testSteps["Properties"].setPropertyValue( "x-client-type-value-str", xclientType);


    In headers tab of the request, define Header column value of what is actually needed for the request.  In the Value column of the tab, use property expansion to set it to what is contained in the "Properties" named test step...  


    Header             |      Value

    ----------             |     ----------

    x-request-id      |     ${Properties#x-request-id-value-str}

    x-client-type      |     ${Properties#x-client-type-value-str}


    I hope I interpreted your question as you meant it.  :)
