A new trigger action has been added to Squiz Matrix, allowing you to make a SOAP call. The Make SOAP Call trigger action works in a similar manner to the Make SOAP Call submission action on a Custom Form or Ecommerce Form Page, allowing you to send a message to a remote SOAP server when the trigger is fired.

This trigger action retains all the features of the existing Make SOAP Call form submission action, allowing you to specify the parameters of the SOAP request message, test the content of the request, and configure data validation and error messages.

This feature has been developed to further extend support for web services within Squiz Matrix.

Asset Status Being Changed To Trigger Condition

A new trigger condition has been added to evaluates the status that an asset is being changed to. The Asset Status Being Changed To trigger condition allows you to specify one or more asset statuses (Live, Under Construction etc.) and will be matched if the firing asset's status is being changed to one of these statuses.

This condition can be used in conjunction with the Before Status Changed and Status Changed trigger events, for example, you could use this condition to prevent users from changing an asset to a particular asset status (using the Fail trigger action).

Before Status Changed Trigger Event

Currently, Squiz Matrix's trigger system includes the Status Changed trigger event, which will fire a trigger when the status of an asset has been changed. This feature introduces a new trigger event that will fire a trigger when the status of an asset is to be changed but before the status is actually altered.

Make SOAP Call Submission Action: Check Response Rules 

This month's Matrix releases introduced data validation on the SOAP response of the Custom Form's Make SOAP Call form submission action. This feature adds the ability to configure data validation rules to further customise how Matrix evaluates whether or not data returned on the SOAP response is valid

You can now select from a variety of rule types (e.g. must contain, must NOT contain etc.), stipulating a value to create a rule that must be met for a SOAP response to be valid.

For example, if you set the validation rule as Must NOT contain Fail, the response will only be deemed valid if the response does not contain the value Fail. If it does contain this value, the returned data will be evaluated as invalid and the error configured in the Error Message field will be displayed.
