Using authentication token from separate web service

Using authentication token from separate web service

Apologies if this was answered before,  My quick search did not seem to cover this.


I am needing to perform a security test using Secure on a webservice.  Unfortunately, the process to authenticate to the webservice is to supply the authentication credentials to a different authentication webservice in order to obtain a token.  This one time use token is then used to access the service that I need to test.   


I was hoping that there would be a way to use SoapUI NG (1.5.0) to obtain the token and somehow pass it to Secure.  Or is there a way that I can use secure to access the authentication service, obtain the token, then use the token to test the other service. 


Any information would be quite helpful.

Hi Gelkins,


Theoretically, you can do the following:

  1. In SoapUI NG, get the response containing your token.
  2. Save its value to a project property (via the Property Transfer operation).
  3. Use this property in Secure.
