Outbound Quote Request

quoteRequest() is a SOAP operation that may be optionally implemented as part of our LIXI Quote Process.

A quote will be sent to the valuation firms’s SOAP service. The following operation signature should be implemented:

int quoteRequest(string valuationMessage, amount)


  • valuationMessage is a full LIXI request message.
  • amount is for the valuation fee amount (if it is already a set fee ValEx). Note that if the amount passed through is zero, then it indicates that the valfirm that the fee will need to be quoted on.

The /ValuationTransaction/Message/MessageBody/Status/@Name will be set to Inquiring status to indicate that it is a quote.
