1849044 - ESI - How to change the WSDL URL and the service URL for ABAP based Web Services


A Web Service definition and a corresponding runtime configuration (Endpoint) has been created in transaction SOAMANAGER. However a different <protocol>://<host>:<port> is required than the current one. For example when the path should point to the loadbalancer, instead of the current application server.

  • Case 1: In transaction SOAMANAGER when opening the WSDL for the selected binding, the URL of the WSDL should contain a different protocol/host/port.
  • Case 2: Within the WSDL file, at the bottom end of the file, the protocol/host/port value should be different within the <soap:address location="<host>:<port>/sap/bc..."> part.
