SOAP MTOM and Layer 7

Hi All,


I am wondering if anyone has used CA API Management (Layer 7) for SOAP MTOM requests.


I created a SOAP service policy using the policy manager. I am able to send a non-MTOM soap request to this service policy and it works fine. However, when I send a MTOM soap request, the response sent back is:


l7:policyResult status="Service not found. The request may have been sent to an invalid URL, or intended for an unsupported operation." - It's almost as if the MTOM encoding is making the request invisible to Layer 7 or something.


I've tried to create a separtate non-Soap service policy to understand if the problem is with the 'type' of service, but I receive the same response as above.


Layer 7 includes policy assertions for encoding and decoding MTOM, so I believe Layer 7 can receive soap MTOM requests, but I am at a loss as to how to configure a service to accept MTOM. Does anyone on this forum have any experience with soap MTOM and layer 7? If so, please help.


Thanks in advance.
