Before the AS ABAP system can access the external web service , access to the internet from the AS ABAP system must be possible. Typically the AS ABAP system will access the internet through a proxy server. If not yet configured, you can configure the proxy in transaction SICF.
|Start configuration of “Proxy Settings”|
In transaction SICF choose from the menu Client => Proxy Settings.
|HTTPS protocol proxy configuration|
On the following popup switch to the tab HTTPS Protocol and enter the correct host and port information. If required enter proxy logon data, too.
|Activate proxy settings|
Then switch to the tab Global Settings and turn on „Proxy Setting is Active“ and confirm the proxy settings.
