Hi All,

We have just started using Web Services from SAP.

We encountered an issue where we needed to change the request structure generated by Proxy Class. In the screen, it advises to go to tcode SPROXY for changes in proxy generated structures.

However, when i go to tcode SPROXY, i can see some standard objects but not my custom ones( With the message "Only Local Objects" No ESR Connection).

Note: We do not have a PI System as of now( HCI will be coming soon )


a) How to make SPROXY work for my custom web services. Is it mandatory to have PI/HCI for SPROXY to run correctly. Can we have a ESR without PI.? Do we need a JAVA AS to run ESR?

b) For Web Services logging and tracking, we need SRT_UTIL , SXMB_MONI transactions(Which are currrently unavailable), Now, currently we are running on NetWeaver 7.0, if we upgrade it to NetWeaver 7.3, will we be able to use these transactions effectively,

    1 - To design / model  Enterprise Services in your ESR you do not need a PI Installation. You can also go for a Composition Environment Installation ( CE ). In such cases, you would connect ECC to your CE Server. In such cases, ESR will just act as a Design Time repository. No runtime ABAP Proxy capabilities will exist.

    2 - You need to configure SOAMANAGER on ECC 6.0 NW 7.0 and then use SOAMANAGER transaction to then login and monitor the webservices. You will see links for Logs&Traces, Monitoring etc. Havent done this myself on NW 7.0 but this is what my understanding is .

    • Hello Sahil,

      I had seen the SAP help link as well but wasnt clear myself.

      Last I used CE was on NW 7.2 when a stand alone installation was supported.

      On 7.3 and above, you might need to look up service market place, and installation guides available there.. Unfortunately beyond this my answers will be more of a speculation 😊

      Would also be worth raising this question on the SAP Netweaver Platform question. Maybe basis consultants over there have more knowledge..
