Trouble using Post file in Automate BPA Server 7.
It is working well in Automate 8 and I need to know if there is an issue in BPA server 7 with this action?

Got some attached files to compare with and there are some different variables in version 8 compared to version 7.

SOAP Action is missing in ver.7
ErrorMessage:

(Step 72) Reading node value at XPath location "//ns0:serviceRequestNumber" and placing it into variable "strWebReqErrandNr". Sessionname is "XMLSession1".

(Step 72) No node found for given XPath expression.

//Joakim Andersson

We solved this issue by sending information needed to an *.txt file and let automate 8 use the webrequest HTTP post after inporting the values to variables. Then Automate8 could perform the webrequest HTTP post.

We think this issue with automate 7 compared to automate 8 is caused by version incompability since there are a step missing in the http post in the previus version of automate.

We needed to have Request headers: SOAPAction and its value.
That is the only thing different with the versions as I could see it.

You can see the different values in the attached images.

Hoping to have less trouble with this issue in version 9 and 10.
