You can get a SOAP response instead of an HTTP 202 when invoking an IN-ONLY operation by setting the returnRequestStatus attribute to true in a dataservice operation. For example,

Code Block
<operation name="operation1" returnRequestStatus="true"> 
   <call-query href="QRY_INSERT_DM"> 
       <with-param name="dm1" query-param="dm1"/> 
       <with-param name="dm2" query-param="dm3"/> 

Handling Faulty Requests

A structured SOAP fault message will be returned for an incorrect invocation of the data service. For example, if you use an invalid value to invoke a data service which that validates the length of the parameters, a SOAP fault SOAP fault with VALIDATION_ERROR code will be returned. A SOAP fault message is constructed as given in the following XML schema structure.

Code Block
<xs:element name="DataServiceFault">
        <xs:element name="current_params" type="xs:string"/>
        <xs:element name="current_request_name" type="xs:string"/>
        <xs:element name="nested_exception" type="xs:string"/>
        <xs:element name="source_data_service">
                <xs:element name="location" type="xs:string"/>
                <xs:element name="default_namespace" type="xs:string"/>
                <xs:element name="description" type="xs:string"/>
                <xs:element name="data_service_name" type="xs:string"/>
