3334528 - Not able to add UI text for web service


When checking the WSIL information in the Service Explorer view you notice that the </wsil:name> tag has the following value:

  • UI text missing for YABCDEFGY_II_YABCXYZQITRFOPCTU (where YABCDEFGY_II_YABCXYZQITRFOPCTU represents the web service name)


  • SAP Cloud Applications Studio
  • SAP Business ByDesign
  • SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Administrator or Application and User Management work center.
  2. Go to the Service Explorer View.
  3. Select the filter 'Inbound Partner Service Interface'. 
  4. Click at Open WSIL button.


The system does not support adding UI texts for custom web services, so it is not possible to change the UI texts.


The UI texts for custom web services created from the Studio can not be changed.
