Define WebService System


I have a lot's of problem with the defined ws systems.

The origin is that, as I understood, I have to define a WebService System each time I update the webservice definition else VC don't see the modifications.

Actually, I have today multiple systems pointing to the same webservice. (I tried to delete them in portal System Administration/System Configuration/Content/Visual Composer but I wonder if I didn't break something !?)

Could you help me to delete thoses systems and maybe explain me how to force VC to read the wsdl definition if updated ?

thanks a lot,

    Did you turn off the caching of the web services in Visual Composer?

      Go to the Portal, System administration->System configuration, and there define your system (WSDL-URL). One of the parameters is WSDL caching (days). As default it is set to 1 (one day). Set it to "none". Caching will be switched-off.

      Then, when you define a new service in you backed-system, it will be updated in VC "Find data" list.

      The problem which I haven't solved yet, is updating some of the WS parameters. VC still shows old outputs.

    Hi Thomas,

    If you are using EP6 or later, there is a way of clearing the PCD cache (which includes cached metadata from RFC, JDBC or web service connections).

    If you navigate to System Administration > Support > Portal Content Directory > PCD Administration, you will see a screen which allows you to either remove specific objects from the cache, or to flush the entire PCD cache.

    If you then close all Internet Explorer windows and log into VC again, you should see the updated WSDL.

    This is also mentioned in SAP Note 868887.
