In the Dell Boomi, under Manage -> Atom Mangement, choose your Atom.
In Atom Info choose Shared Web Server Settings.
Choose the Authentication Type as BASIC from the dropdown menu.


Copy the base URL (exclude https:// from the url) as mentioned in the above screenshot.

Maintain the SOAP Protocol settings as shown below - Warning: if it is not possible to set the value for field RM protocol, see KBA 2495704 - RM Protocol field not working in SOAMANAGER.


Click on "Finish" and Save.

Make sure that the logical port is now activated in the SOAMANAGER by starting a Ping Web Service.
You will get this error message HTTP ERROR 405:


From a technical point of view everything is alright. You get this error message because the Ping can't fill the business content of the web service, see KBAs 1947516 and 1711486.
If you get this or a similar error message when you start the Ping Web Service:SRT Framework exception: Service Ping ERROR:

Error when calling SOAP Runtime functions: SRT: Processing error in Internet Communication Framework: ("ICF Error when receiving the response: ICM_HTTP_SSL_ERROR")
you are most probably missing one or more certificates.

This error message is generated at technical handshake between SAP ERP HCM and the middleware systems, at the level of the Internet Communication Framework (ICF).
