SOAP Sender - minimal authorization

Hello everyone,

we are publishing a webservice in PI 7.1 by providing a corresponding SOAP Sender Adapter.

First of all - the Webservice works fine and can be successfully called from applications like SOAP-UI.

Now for our question.

For testing purposes we used an SAP_ALL-Account. However we would like to switch to a restricted technical user now. So what are the MINIMAL authorization requirements for such an user?

We have already tried serveral authorizations but we always receive the error: 'You are not authorized to view the requested resource'.

The information in the PI security guide (http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04s/helpdata/en/f7/c2953fc405330ee10000000a114084/frameset.htm) didn't work for us. Any clues?

Thanks and regards,

lars

    In PI 7.0 roles of XIAPPLUSER / PIAPPLUSER where the requisties for a SOAP Call.

    I don't see any reason why this would have changed.

    Give it a shot with a user of these roles on 7.1 and see if you have any issues.

    Hi Patrick,

    you are right. The four authorizations are sufficient. Thanks for your help.

    @everyone: Thanks for your efforts. The role SAP_XI_APPL_SERV_USER is not sufficient as sole athorization.

    Regards,

    lars

    Hi,

    I have created a user with the four roles that you have mentioned:

    • SAP_XI_ADMINISTRATOR_J2EE

    • SAP_XI_APPL_SERV_USER

    • SAP_XI_DEVELOPER_J2EE

    • SAP_XI_IS_SERV_USER

    and made the User Type as Communication.

    however, my user still cannot access the WebService.

    Please advise.

    thank you!
