Error WSM-00069 "The security header is missing" When Testing a Web Service in Fusion Middleware Control

(Doc ID 1574034.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 25, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Web Services Manager - Version 11.1.1.4.0 to 11.1.1.6.0 [Release 11gR1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

A Web Service is secured with an OWSM service policy.  When the Test Web Service screen in the Fusion Middleware Control (EM) is used to test the web service, it fails, even though the correct client policy is attached to the request.  The following message is shown:

 oracle.wsm.security.SecurityException: WSM-00069 : The security header is missing. Ensure that there is a valid security policy attached at the client side, and the policy is enabled.

The error occurs even though all necessary fields associated with the policy have been populated correctly.  The same service works when accessed from other clients.
