    Default SOAP API - getting started

    Is there any documentation that would help me get started using the SOAP API? I will not be using a library such
    as PHP, etc, just making direct http posts from a C program using libcurl. I have done this before with Exchange Web Services, but with Zimbra I'm not sure how to get started - what URL do I post to? What is the Authorization token and how do I get one? Specific examples of how a POST should be formatted would be very helpful.

    Link for all user's services: https://domain.com/service/soap
    Link for all Admin's services: https://domain.com:7071/service/soap
    To get Authorization token you must call AuthRequest service

    Neither of those links work.

    "Must call AuthRequest service". See, this is why I posted my original question - I have no idea what you mean by that. Where is the documentation for AuthRequest?

    A little further down the forum is a thread asking the same question about where to start with the documentation.

    http://www.zimbra.com/forums/develop...tml#post335352

    I know you said you will not be using PHP but if you can read PHP code you can find pointers in the code for the Z-push Zimbra Backend - it uses curl to send SOAP requests to the server. Z-Push Zimbra Backend / Code / [r224] /zimbra-backend/branches/z-push-2

    Search for AuthRequest to see how the request is formatted, then search for "function SoapRequest" to see how the requests are sent to the server.

    @jmckay123:
    These links are my example, not real link
    You can see more document about zimbra's soap in here:
