Invoking XI web service within GP process

Hi,

I have tried to setup a guided procedures process which consists among other things of the invocation of a XI web serivce. (I'm using XI 3.0 and the GP Version which comes with SP8).

Since the request of a XI web services needs authentication, I have to define a logical destination for that web service, haven't I? Or is there another (easier) possibility?

Regards,

Marc

    easier way to consume web service from GP with or without authentication or easier way that doesn't involve LP definition for web service in XI?

    the web service consumption from GP to XI needs to provide authentication because of XI. when you configure the web service callable object in GP provide the xi wsdl and in the GP Administration tab provide username and password in the definition of the XI web service endpoint.

    I'm not sure why you need to define a Logical Destination in XI for. XI is the service provider and my understanding is logical destination in abap stack is needed when you're the service consumer.

    Hi Mark,

    Since your web service requires authentication, you will have to set up a logical destination using the J2EE Visual Administrator. To do this, go to: Services->Web Services Security->Security Configuration->Web Service Clients->sap.com->DynamicWSProxies and then choose the "create" button. This logical destination will then show up in the GP Create web service callable object drop down for logical destinations.

    Austin.

      Hello Marc,

      i am not sure if this will help you, but i had the same error message (original locale is invalid) when apply german as a default language for callable objects, actions... This is a know issue and can be solved by choosing english as language for your objects/actions...

      There is also a patch, but unfortunately i have no idea where to find it.

      regards,

      Rene
