Enabling fails with WS Security profile on Connect-SOAP
User is facing an issue while enabling Web Service Security in Connect SOAP rule using username and password authentication.
Following are the issues identified with the user's configuration:
*WS Addressing is not selected due to lack of documentation.
*Username and Password which is part of outflow, are specified in the inflow. The webservice is not sending username and password while serving the request.
security.wssecurity.WSSContextImpl.s02: com.ibm.websphere.security.WSSecurityException: Exception org.apache.axis2.AxisFault: CWWSS6500E: There is no caller identity
candidate that can be used to login. ocurred while running action: [email protected]61

Steps to Reproduce
1.Generate Connect SOAP rule with Connector Meta Data wizard.
2. Enable WS Security by selecting the checkbox.
3. Provide a security profile, selecting username and password in the outflow and username and password in the inflow.
The root cause of this problem is an error/omission in product documentation. When WebService Security (WS Security) is enabled, WS Addressing has to be selected, which is another configuration parameter part of the advanced tab in the connect SOAP rule, which is not specified in the documentation.
This issue is resolved through the following local-change:
1. Select WS Addressing option.
2. User is adviced to remove the configuration in the Inflow tab of the security profile.
