Configuring SOAP transport run time properties
Every PAS for OpenEdge instance can have a different transport mechanism for all its deployed services based on sessions, timeouts, and other advanced properties. You can configure your SOAP transport run time properties using the SOAP transport configuration for ABL Application <ABL application name> WebApp <webapp name> page.
To set SOAP transport run time properties:
1. Click Resources > Go to Resources in the OpenEdge Management console menu.
All resources managed by your console appear in the grid frame.
2. Filter or search for, and select the required PAS for OpenEdge instance.
For example, type the default PAS for OpenEdge instance name, oepas1, in the Filter field or select Progress Application Server as the selection in the Type drop-down menu and select the PAS instance.
The Progress Application Server: <instance name> page appears.
3. Click an ABL application listed in the ABL Applications section.
The ABL Application: <ABL application name> page appears.
Note: The OpenEdge manager web application, oemanager, must be installed on PAS for OpenEdge for you to manage OpenEdge ABL applications and transport services while the PAS for OpenEdge instance is running.
4. Click an ABL Web application listed in the ABL WebApps section.
The ABL WebApp: <webapp name> page appears.
5. Click Run-time Properties under the SOAP Transport section.
