Configuring Web Services

Web services are used to direct the inbound and outbound messages to and from:

ATP ASI test is a testing script that simulates a simple fulfillment engine. The script writes the output and response to an XML file on the server machine. By default, the output and response are written to ${SIEBEL_HOME}/bin, for example D:\Siebel\bin. The script writes an output file, called ATPOutput.xml, which represents what you would be sending to your middleware or fulfillment engine. Then it generates a real-time response and sends that back to the Web service. The generated response is written into a file called ATPFinished.xml, which you can see in the file system.

This testing infrastructure allows you to analyze what will be sent to the middleware and what Siebel eSales is expecting back. Based on this data, it will show you how it populates the data on the UI.

You must make sure that the Web services are correctly configured.

To configure the Web services

  1. Navigate to the Web Services Administration screen.
  2. From the Show drop-down list, select Outbound Web Services.
  3. Select the row with External ATP Check in the Name field.
  4. Verify that the fields in the Outbound Web Services list match those in the following table.
  5. Namespace
    External ATP Check

  6. In the Service Ports list, click New, and enter the following values in the fields of the new record.
  7. Field
    Enter a name for the port.
    Port Type
    Enter External ATP Check.
    Select from the drop-down list.
    If you want to set up testing, for example when you are customizing applets or extending the ASI, select Local Business Service.
    When you select a transport, the field will be populated with a template address. Edit the address based on where you are sending the data.
    If you want to set up testing, for example when you are customizing applets or extending the ASI, enter ATP ASI Test.
    If a SOAP header is expected by the receiving application, select SOAP_RPC.
    If you are using ATP ASI Test, select Property Set.
