SOAP Sender ADAPTER 401 No Authorisation

Hi all,

we want to make a PUBLIC webservice on our XI system. The problem is that we always need to give credentials when we do a post (XI username/password).

We don't want that, we've read info on SAP concerning this issue (SAP note 856597):

<i>The user authentication of the SOAP adapter is not part of the SOAP adapter but of the web container of the J2EE engine. The default authentication setting is defined in the web.xml descriptor file of the SOAP dapter web application. This setting may be modified from Visual Administrator with some restriction. Please refer to the security documentation for the J2EE engine.</i>

Does anyone of you knows how we can make our Web service a PUBLIC web service (without username/password credentials)...

      Hi Colin,

      I am also facing the similar problem. I don't want to enter the username and password exclusively, instead of that i want to pass along with the URL, which will hit the SOAP adapter.

      I have done the same way you suggested. But still it is poping login screen. Below is my URL:


      Can you please suggest me, Still i need to do any settings..??
