i have a problem with connecting to the webservice of economic. although the login data (agreement, userid, password) is correct (can login on the website) and the api is activated/registered in the settings menu, i still can not access the soap client functions.

i always get the following error:

Soap fault soap:Sender - Economic.Api.Exceptions.AuthorizationException(E02000): Access denied. {id=356554426}.

this is the way, my soap client is connecting:

function get_soap_connection() {
    static $client;

    if (!isset($client)) {
        $settings = parse_ini_file(realpath(dirname(__FILE__)  '/economicsini'));
        $options = array(
            'soap_version' = SOAP_1_2,
            'exceptions' = 1,
            'trace' = 1,
            'cache_wsdl' = 0
        try {
            $client = new SoapClient($settings'wsdl_endpoint', $options);

                'agreementNumber' = $settings'agreement_number',
                'userName' = $settings'user_name',
                'password' = $settings'password'
        } catch (SoapFault $fault) {
            trigger_error(sprintf(Soap fault %s - %s, $fault-faultcode, $fault-faultstring), E_USER_ERROR);

    return $client;

thanks for any suggestions in advance.

The agreement number you're connecting with is an administrator agreement number.

You must either log in using a company agreement number, or use the alternative ConnectAsAdministrator() method (supplying the administrator agreement number, user ID, password, and company agreement number whose data you wish to access):

thanks for the reply.

i have tried some different agreement numbers of the companies which are set up in the settings menu, but none of them worked.

then i used the ConnectAsAdministrator method, but got an other error:

Access not granted SOAP-ERROR Encoding object has no 'adminAgreementNo' property

did i miss something?

i have solved this, just take a look at the parameter names of the function definition in the xml.

Do I understand you correctly that you DID end up getting everything working?
