How to test GSOAP webservice call

We have all had that issue with the Repository or the Orchestration Engine being unable to get to the gsoap web service URL.  And, this is with all SBM components installed on the same server.  Why can't it get to itself?  Or in the case orchestrations, maybe we cannot figure out why the OE is unable to reach a third party web service.

Permanently Deleting Fields While in Development

I don’t know of an SBM administrator that has created a new workflow, created a field, deployed and then realized that they needed a different field type and now are saddled with an extraneous field in their system that they can never delete.  I have heard requests for the enhancement for years!

@ShrobeUK Sounds like it was a struggle. Let me know if it was lack of docs, or just a tough process. I will get that feedback to the PM
