Unable to import WSDL in PRPC 5.4 SP2



While importing WSDL file, missing element error occurs. This prevents the import from completing successfully.

Error Messages

** Couldn't parse WSDL file. ERROR: Missing element inFault "ServiceFaultFault" in operation "ServiceFaultFault", in binding GetJobBarcode

Steps to Reproduce

1. Go to Application > New > Connector.
2. Import WSDL for Metadata type DOT NET, copy the URL for the WSDL location, click Next.

Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is a defect in Pegasystems’ code/rules. PRPC 5.4 SP2 does not parse wsdl:fault elements correctly.


In your WSDL file(s), replace all instances of "wsdl:fault" to "soap:fault". For example,

<wsdl:fault name="FaultyFault">
    <soap:fault name="FaultyFault" use="literal"/>


<soap:fault name="FaultyFault">
    <soap:fault name="FaultyFault" use="literal"/>

This has the same result as the wsdl:fault construction, but PRPC 5.4 SP2 can parse it correctly.
