Enabling Engage SOAP Access

You can create a VMP user and enable SOAP access for this user from Engage.

Note: To enable SOAP access from Engage, VMP must be licensed to use the Pager Inbound SOAP Connector. By default, VMP licenses do not include this connector. See Configuring the VMP License for more information on licensing.
