    you have to activate the service in transaction SICF.

    Search there for the name of your created WebService.

    Make sure that the service is set to active.

    You need to assign User and Password in the service in tabstrip item Logon-data as a requested service can not open an authentication popup.

    In Dev-System you can check with your own user. In Prod make sure to use a dedicated non Dialog user.

    • Hello Phani,

      which testing environment are you using for your tests ? In the standard NW environment we sometimes phase problems with caching - here it helps to close all (!!!) Internet Explorer windows and then to retry it. In case you are trying to test it with 3rd party tools - have you already tested the service with the SAP Netweaver testing evnironment ? You can find a link to the this testing environment on the Web Service Tool Wizard Page 4 in the left lower corner.

      Best regards, Thilo

    Hi there,

    I am very much confused about the selection of SAP Module. I did 10+2 2001 in PCM, B.A(Hons)in Geography 2004, PGDCA-2006 through Distance learning and MCA-2008 also through distance learning.I am not good in programing but having interest in database and ERP. I am in job since 2004 and holding more then 3 years of experience in total with HCL-BPO and UnitedHealth Group as an Operations Executive.More then 2 years of my experience is in healthcare insurance industry only.

    I will be very much thankful If anyone can suggest me which Module will be best for me as per my experience and qualifications.

    Thanks and Regards

    We have fixed this issue by setting up a new web service user account with authorization object s_service , the user and password were maintained at the service level by using soamanager --> Business Administration -> Web service administrations -> select the web service --> conifigurations -> edit and maintain userid and password . Check in transaction SICF and it should visible there too ( it will dissappear from the soamanager screens randomly but check SICF if it there or not ).

    When the link for open web service navigator for selected binding is clicked , it should open up the portal internet explorer webs services navigator screen( or which ever java server that is linked in the Technical configuration ---> system global settings --> Access information J2EE server ).

    In the Business administration > overview > click Open WSDL document for selected binding . Copy and paste this link in the web services navigator screen --> WSDL or URL of the web service field . Should ask you for a logon of the end point system and bring up the test browser.

    Good Luck
