Rule creation is aborted while importing WSDL



WSDL is provided to integrate a SOAP Service with an existing Claims application. While importing the WSDL to the application to set up rules, an error occurs on the final step when the wizard attempts to create the rules. As a result, the wizard aborts the rule creation.

Error Messages

Generation process has been cancelled and all created records have been removed.

Error Description:

Cancelling rule generation, Undefined Type or Element referenced in method doesExist:{}string

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Import the WSDL provided
  2. Run through the SOAP Connector Integration wizard

Root Cause

The issue is determined by enabling DEBUG on the below code:


The GuideWire software that must be used in Pega is an old application.
The application used Pega encoded WSDL (which is not the norm any more). Document Encoded WSDL is created for use by the new SOAP Integration wizard.


Perform the following local-change:
Use the connector and metadata accelerator instead of the New SOAP Integration wizard.

Pega still provides access to a legacy wizard to allow the backward compatibility.
