Service ValidationLocate this document in the navigation structure

SAP Gateway Service Validation Tool validates the runtime for all the SAP Gateway services to ensure that all the services work fine. Service Validation tool runs without user intervention and performs the runtime validation on a single service document.

Runtime Validation

Runtime validation ensures that the runtime is behaving as intended and there are no issues with it (like syntax errors in programs, RFC authorization issues, and so on). It involves executing Read and Query operations on the collections exposed via a service document and checking the HTTP response code.

For Read operation, the tool also takes care of executing the self links for all the collections and all the navigation properties in a recursive manner.

Note

Choose the option Compatibility Mode SP02 for validating/displaying services under ICF node sdata and the option Standard Mode for validating/displaying services under ICF node odata.

To validate a service:

  1. In transaction SPRO open the SAP Reference IMG and navigate to: Start of the navigation path SAP NetWeaver Next navigation step SAP Gateway Next navigation step OData Channel Development with IW_BEP Next navigation step  Registration Next navigation step  Service Validation Next navigation step Validate Service  End of the navigation path and click the Activity icon or go to transaction /IWFND/SRV_VALIDATE.

  2. Enter the service document identifier in the Service Document Name field. For example, /IWFND/SG_SAMPLE_RMT_SFLIGHT_0001.

  3. Select Validate Service and choose Execute.

To display the result of the last run validation:

  1. In transaction SPRO open the SAP Reference IMG and navigate to: Start of the navigation path SAP NetWeaver Next navigation step SAP Gateway Next navigation step OData Channel Development with IW_BEP Next navigation step  Registration Next navigation step  Service Validation Next navigation step Validate Service  End of the navigation path and click the Activity icon or go to transaction /IWFND/SRV_VALIDATE.

  2. Enter the service document identifier in the Service Document Name field. For example, /IWFND/SG_SAMPLE_RMT_SFLIGHT_0001.

  3. Select Display Last Run Results and choose Execute.

The result displays the execution status of the URIs of all the collections and their navigation properties. The collections which appear as a folder can be expanded to see the result of checks run on the navigation properties and self links. You can also double-click the value in the Long Text field to display the XML document.

You can perform the following actions from the result screen:

  • Provide Filter criteria and save a Filter variant

  • Navigate to the Error Log in case of errors

  • Copy the complete URI to the clip board

  • Navigate to the SAP Gateway Service Explorer
