Source Location: This field cannot be blank

Steps to Reproduce

DesignerStudio > Integration > Connectors > Create SOAP Integration

Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is a defect in Pegasystems’ code/rules.
This is a regression in Pega 7.1.5. The problem does not occur in earlier or later product releases.


To get pass this issue, copy the desired WSDL file to the file system of the PRPC server, choose Upload WSDL via URL, and specify the full path of the WSDL file in the field, such as file:///c:/users/test/myWSDL.wsdl.
