As with every method we need to pass in credentials. We do this with the LookupUser request object.

We’ll assume you’ve got a web reference, let’s name it SWS, in your Visual Studio project.  We’ll need the standard service object and a GetOrgList response object.

// Create a response object
SWS.WSSoapClient service = new SWS.WSSoapClient();
SWS.GetOrgList_Response response;

We can call the method and pass across the login object to get our org list. It’s a good idea to do this in a Try Catch block.

// Call the method that will load the response object
  response = service.GetOrgList(user_request);
catch (Exception ex)

Note that if something goes wrong the service will respond with an exception. You’ll want to take a look at that message returned in that exception so it can be debugged.
