WS-Security SOAP Header does not include expected elements


Our SAP R/3 Enterprise is sending messages to XI which then forwards them to third party applications withing our corporate firewall.

One of these applications (Java) provides a Web Service to which we are attempting to direct a message from XI.

This Web Service requires WS-Security information be included in the SOAP header identifying Username, Password as described by the Oasis standards.













I have gone through a lot of documentation provided by SAP and SDN in an attempt to determine how and what to configure in order to generate the above SOAP header and although I am fairly sure SAP XI can perform this function I am at a loss on what needs to be done.

Their are plenty of documents describing how to do this for a Web Service generated by an SAP (WAS, R/3, XI, etc) but other than references to doing so for a third party application nothing that is concrete. Yet I am fairly certain that it is a simple process.

In one article of SAP Insider I found reference to this email address and am hoping that you will be able to assist.

Our XI is currently running WAS Netweaver 04 (640) patched at SAPKB64017.
