2492879 - ESI - Error: SoapFaulCodeName: ActionNotSupported


When testing a Service Consumer in transaction SE80 connecting to an external service, system raises the following error message:

SoapFaulCodeName: ActionNotSupported |SoapFaulCodeNamespace: http://<hostname>/<path> The message with Action '<SOAP Action configured>' cannot be processed at the receiver, due to a ContractFilter mismatch at the EndpointDispatcher. This issue may be because of either a contract mismatch (mismatched Actions between sender and receiver) or a binding/security mismatch between the sender and the receiver. Check that sender and receiver have the same contract and the same binding (including security requirements, for example: Message, Transport, None).
