Error Opening Web Service Navigator

I am trying to publish an ABAP Function Module as a Web Service using SOAMANAGER. I can can see that the following are working

Open porttype WSDL document

Open WSDL document for selected binding

But the "Open Web Service navigator for selected binding" is coming up with the error below


Error Message

What has happened?

URL http://host:port/wsnavigator/jsps/explorer.jsp call was terminated because the corresponding service is not available.


■The termination occurred in system M2P with error code 404 and for the reason Not found.

■The selected virtual host was 0 .

What can I do?

■Please select a valid URL.

■If you do not yet have a user ID, contact your system administrator.

    Hi Manoj,

    Have you activated the service using TCode SICF?

    Path: /default_host/sap/bc/srt/xip/sap/(your service name)

    Please also refrain from posting host & port details of your system on SDN, I've edited your URL accordingly.

    Regards, Trevor

      Hi Manoj,

      The problem is most likely related to this thread:

      [Enterprise services consumption by 3rd party -> Security;

      Get someone from authorizations to assist you. You'll need to have either the role SAP_BC_WEBSERVICE_CONSUMER or SAP_BC_WEBSERVICE_ADMIN

      assigned to the user you're using. Then in TCode PFCG you'll need to check that that both of the roles above have the underlying authorization

      object called 'S_SERVICE'. If not, re-generate them in TCode PFCG until you have all green lights there. Then re-test your webservice with WSNavigator.

      At least you're starting to get more generic errors now that you'll find by searching in SDN. I think you should be able to tackle them yourself from here.

      Regards, Trevor
