Oracle BigMachines CPQ Cloud Service - Version 11.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When a user attempts to start an action, that requires integration with another server through Webmethods, the customer is receiving the following error message:

"com.bm.xchange.util.UrlEx.sendDataToHtmlUrl(UrlEx.java:279) - Could not open connection.java.io.IOException: Server returned HTTP response code: 403 for URL:"


 A common change that results in this error would be to create a new, or copy a pricing service in Webmethods.
