SOAP API Overview
Soap (Simple Object Access Protocol) is a protocol for exchanging XML-based messages using HTTP/S. SOAP is useful for some applications because it isn’t tied to a specific operating system or programming language and can be used with any transport protocol.

When to use this API
The SOAP API is ideal for informing people about important events that require the receiver to take action. These alerts can be automated and triggered by specific events.
