SOAP Request Format

SOAP requests are "envelopes" of specially formatted XML data posted to a URL. You can find out more about SOAP at www.w3.org/TR/soap/.

The SOAP Server Endpoint URL is https://api.flickr.com/services/soap/

To request the flickr.test.echo service, send an envelope like this:

<s:Envelope
	xmlns:s="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope"
	xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/1999/XMLSchema-instance"
	xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/1999/XMLSchema"
>
	<s:Body>
		<x:FlickrRequest xmlns:x="urn:flickr">
			<method>flickr.test.echo</method>
			<name>value</name>
		</x:FlickrRequest>
	</s:Body>
</s:Envelope>

The first element inside the body must be a FlickrRequest element. Each request parameter should be a single child element of the FlickrRequest element. The name of the element is the name of the parameter and it's contents are the value.

By default, SOAP requests will send a SOAP response.
