This happens when the communication scenario has the same name as external webservice (.wsid) in your solution and you have selected an inbound webservice in communication scenario. Due to these reasons, duplicate entries will be created in backend


To resolve this you can follow either of the following steps

  • If you do not require the inbound service in your communicaiton scenario,  select only the outbound service in the communication scenario.
  • If you require the inbound service , then change the name of the communication scenario. It should be different from the .wsid filenames in your solution.
