SYNOPSIS

Creates a Web service proxy object that lets you use and manage the Web service in Windows PowerShell.

SYNTAX

NoCredentials (Default)

New-WebServiceProxy [-Uri] <Uri> [[-Class] <String>] [[-Namespace] <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

Credential

New-WebServiceProxy [-Uri] <Uri> [[-Class] <String>] [[-Namespace] <String>] [-Credential <PSCredential>]
 [<CommonParameters>]

UseDefaultCredential

New-WebServiceProxy [-Uri] <Uri> [[-Class] <String>] [[-Namespace] <String>] [-UseDefaultCredential]
 [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The New-WebServiceProxy cmdlet lets you use a Web service in Windows PowerShell. The cmdlet connects to a Web service and creates a Web service proxy object in Windows PowerShell. You can use the proxy object to manage the Web service.

A Web service is an XML-based program that exchanges data over a network, especially over the Internet. The Microsoft .NET Framework provides Web service proxy objects that represent the Web service as a .NET Framework object.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Create a proxy for a Web service

PS C:\>$zip = New-WebServiceProxy -Uri "http://www.webservicex.net/uszip.asmx?WSDL"

This command creates a .NET Framework proxy of the US Zip Web service in Windows PowerShell.

Example 2: Create a proxy for a Web service and specify namespace and class

PS C:\>$URI = "http://www.webservicex.net/uszip.asmx?WSDL"
PS C:\> $zip = New-WebServiceProxy -Uri $URI -Namespace "WebServiceProxy" -Class "USZip"

This command uses the New-WebServiceProxy cmdlet to create a .NET Framework proxy of the US Zip Web service.

The first command stores the URI of the Web service in the $URI variable.

The second command creates the Web service proxy. The command uses the Uri parameter to specify the URI and the Namespace and Class parameters to specify the namespace and class of the object.

Example 3: Display methods of a Web service proxy

PS C:\>$zip | Get-Member -MemberType method
TypeName: WebServiceProxy.USZip
Name                      MemberType Definition
----                      ---------- ----------
Abort                     Method     System.Void Abort(
BeginGetInfoByAreaCode    Method     System.IAsyncResul
BeginGetInfoByCity        Method     System.IAsyncResul
BeginGetInfoByState       Method     System.IAsyncResul
BeginGetInfoByZIP         Method     System.IAsyncResul
CreateObjRef              Method     System.Runtime.Rem
Discover                  Method     System.Void Discov
Dispose                   Method     System.Void Dispos
EndGetInfoByAreaCode      Method     System.Xml.XmlNode
EndGetInfoByCity          Method     System.Xml.XmlNode
EndGetInfoByState         Method     System.Xml.XmlNode
EndGetInfoByZIP           Method     System.Xml.XmlNode
Equals                    Method     System.Boolean Equ
GetHashCode               Method     System.Int32 GetHa
GetInfoByAreaCode         Method     System.Xml.XmlNode
GetInfoByCity             Method     System.Xml.XmlNode
GetInfoByState            Method     System.Xml.XmlNode
GetInfoByZIP              Method     System.Xml.XmlNode
GetLifetimeService        Method     System.Object GetL
GetType                   Method     System.Type GetTyp
InitializeLifetimeService Method     System.Object Init
ToString                  Method     System.String ToSt

This command uses the Get-Member cmdlet to display the methods of the Web service proxy object in the $zip variable. We will use these methods in the following example.

Notice that the TypeName of the proxy object, WebServiceProxy, reflects the namespace and class names that were specified in the previous example.

Example 4: Use a Web service proxy

PS C:\>$zip.GetInfoByZip(20500).table
CITY      : Washington
STATE     : DC
ZIP       : 20500
AREA_CODE : 202
TIME_ZONE : E

This command uses the Web service proxy stored in the $zip variable. The command uses the GetInfoByZip method of the proxy and its Table property.

PARAMETERS

-Class

Specifies a name for the proxy class that the cmdlet creates for the Web service. The value of this parameter is used together with the Namespace parameter to provide a fully qualified name for the class. The default value is generated from the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI).

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: FileName, FN

Required: False
Position: 1
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Credential

Specifies a user account that has permission to perform this action. The default is the current user. This is an alternative to using the UseDefaultCredential parameter.

Type a user name, such as User01 or Domain01\User01, or enter a PSCredential object, such as one generated by the Get-Credential cmdlet. If you type a user name, this cmdlet prompts you for a password.

Type: PSCredential
Parameter Sets: Credential
Aliases: Cred

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Namespace

Specifies a namespace for the new class.

The value of this parameter is used together with the value of the Class parameter to generate a fully qualified name for the class. The default value is Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.NewWebserviceProxy.AutogeneratedTypes plus a type that is generated from the URI.

You can set the value of the Namespace parameter so that you can access multiple Web services that have the same name.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: NS

Required: False
Position: 2
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Uri

Specifies the URI of the Web service. Enter a URI or the path and file name of a file that contains a service description.

The URI must refer to an .asmx page or to a page that returns a service description. To return a service description of a Web service that was created by using ASP.NET, append ?WSDL to the URL of the Web service, for example: http://www.contoso.com/MyWebService.asmx?WSDL.

Type: Uri
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: WL, WSDL, Path

Required: True
Position: 0
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-UseDefaultCredential

Indicates that this cmdlet uses the default credential. This cmdlet sets the UseDefaultCredential property in the resulting proxy object to True. This is an alternative to using the Credential parameter.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: UseDefaultCredential
Aliases: UDC

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

CommonParameters

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -InformationAction, -InformationVariable, -OutVariable, -OutBuffer, -PipelineVariable, -Verbose, -WarningAction, and -WarningVariable. For more information, see about_CommonParameters (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=113216).

INPUTS

None

You cannot pipe input to this cmdlet.

OUTPUTS

A Web service proxy object

This cmdlet returns a Web service proxy object. The namespace and class of the object are determined by the parameters of the command. The default is generated from the input URI.

NOTES

  • New-WebServiceProxy uses the System.Net.WebClient class to load the specified Web service.
