How to call web-service which needs authentication


I set up a soap-to-soap-scenario with XI. I want to use VC as the soap client to call my XI-web-service. Since authentication is needed to call a web-service from XI, I've tried to find any settings in VC to provide authentication with my web service call. Unfortunately I couldn't such a setting. Is there a possibility at all to call web-services which need authentication?

Kind regards,

    From NW04s SP8 you can create webservice systems from within VC , and you will have the option of adding a user and password to authenticate. You can find it at Tools>>Define web service system. You will see a check box url requires user and password.

    If for some reason you can not do it in VC then you should create the system in the portal and fill out the usermapping screens.

      Keep in mind that if the web service definition is for an internal web service from the ABAP or JAVA stack, it needs to be a public web service to be used adhoc. If it is not public, you have to define this on the Portal as a system.
