Function module is not released for the Internet

ABAP developer calling WebRfc before release function module to internet will experience "Function module is not released for the Internet" error message. Simply, after you create WebRfc function module as an ABAP developer, you have to release function module for internet using SMW0 SAP Web Repository transaction. Although it is possible to test and execute the function module within SE37 transaction, it is not possible to call webRfc from intranet or internet without error.

If you are a script developer working on SAP Screen Personas 3.0 flavors, you can refer to Personas tutorial how to add new FM to Personas function module whitelist to enable that FM to be called within Personas scripts.
