XML SOAP Fault Filtering Check

Jul 25, 2015

The XML SOAP Fault Filtering check examines responses from your protected web services and filters out XML SOAP faults. This prevents leaking of sensitive information to attackers.

If you use the wizard or the configuration utility, in the Modify XML SOAP Fault Filtering Check dialog box, on the General tab you can enable or disable the Block, Log, and Statistics actions, and the Remove action, which removes SOAP faults before forwarding the response to the user.

If you use the command-line interface, you can enter the following command to configure the XML SOAP Fault Filtering Check:

set appfw profile <name> -XMLSOAPFaultAction [block] [log] [stats] [none]

You cannot configure exceptions to the XML SOAP Fault Filtering check. You can only enable or disable it.
