2492879 - "SoapFaulCodeName: ActionNotSupported" error when using Web Services ABAP


When testing a Service Consumer in transaction SE80 to an external service, system raises below error message:

SoapFaulCodeName: ActionNotSupported |SoapFaulCodeNamespace: http://<hostname>/<path> The message with Action '<SOAP Action configured>' cannot be processed at the receiver, due to a ContractFilter mismatch at the EndpointDispatcher. This may be because of either a contract mismatch (mismatched Actions between sender and receiver) or a binding/security mismatch between the sender and the receiver.  Check that sender and receiver have the same contract and the same binding (including security requirements, e.g. Message, Transport, None).
