    Web service consumption Error

    Amit Patwal

      Hi Experts,


      We are trying to consume a SAP web service via SOAP UI, it giving below error:


      “<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">



        <title>Error Report</title>


          td {font-family : Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size : 14px;}

          A:link {color : #0059AA;}

          A:visited {color : #999999;}

          A:active {color : #999999;}



      <body marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" leftmargin="0" topmargin="0" rightmargin="0">

        <table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" align="left" height="75">

          <tr bgcolor="#FFFFFF">

            <td align="left" colspan="2" height="48"><font face="Arial, Verdana, Helvetica" size="4" color="#666666"><b>  401   Unauthorized</b></font></td>


          <tr bgcolor="#3F73A3">

            <td height="23" width="84"><img width=1 height=1 border=0 alt=""></td>

            <td height="23"><img width=1 height=1 border=0 alt=""></td>

            <td align="right" height="23"><font face="Arial, Verdana, Helvetica" size="2" color="#FFFFFF"><b>SAP NetWeaver Application Server </b></font></td>


          <tr bgcolor="#9DCDFD">

            <td height="4" colspan="3"><img width=1 height=1 border=0 alt=""></td>




        <p><font face="Arial, Verdana, Helvetica" size="3" color="#000000"><b>  Error: Unauthorized</b></font></p>

        <p><font face="Arial, Verdana, Helvetica" size="2" color="#000000"><b>  <a href="https://wiki.sdn.sap.com/wiki/x/wIN3Cw">SAP Technology Troubleshooting Guide</a></b></font></p>

        <p><font face="Arial, Verdana, Helvetica" size="2" color="#000000"><table>


            <td valign="top"><b> Details:</b></td>

            <td valign="top"><PRE>No details available.</PRE></td>






      Please suggest what could be possible cause of the issue?

          Can you post example webservice code from soap ui to check?

              Based on the web service code that you are sending and from the error you get, I would say that you are missing Header part (either username and password or ID tag) to authenticate yourself.

                looks like you need make changes in webservice design and reconfigure the webservice:


                Authorization error while consuming web service in SOAP UI

                HTTP 401 – Unauthorized | SAP Blogs


                and exctract from SOAP/HTTP error while calling/consuming a web service in ABAP System?

                • The credentials/security method should be checked, which are maintained in the logical port via SOA Manager (transaction SOAManager ->Service Administration->Web Service Configuration)
                • Consumer Proxy option should be selected and the Consumer Proxy Name should be specified.
                • The relevant configuration should be selected in the consumer system (Logical Port) ->display->Transport settings).
