SharePoint 2013 Workflow

?A few weeks ago I was asked to create a solution to copy a document in SharePoint to another system. This other system had the ability to receive documents and their metadata thru webservices. We have a policy that we only use Out-of-the-box solutions or the app model.

I knew that SharePoint 2013 Workflow no has the option to use webservices so I thought this is going to be an easy one. After some researching and trying I found out that the webservice actions in SharePoint Workflow can only handle REST webservices and not SOAP webservices.

Since this system only has SOAP webservices we had to create an app for this solution which took me a bit longer than expected.

A great article on how to install Workflow for SharePoint 2013 can be found on the site of Spencer Harbar (?
