Default Web Service

Every web server directory is a web service. The Default web service is the master directory for the web server. It contains a special configuration for the MetaDirectory intranet address book.

Enabling a Web Service
If the web service has been disabled, access to those pages will not be possible.

Using Data from LDAP Nodes
Define which LDAP Server data should be available for the web service. If you only want to provide part of the contact data available from the LDAP server through the web service, you should configure a new LDAP node from Database Management and select it from there.

Result Presentation
In addition to the number of results for each view, you can also define a default view and default language.
estos MetaDirectory allows intranet users to save custom settings for the presentation of results. If you want to allow users to choose their own settings, enable the Save Configuration locally on the Client in a Cookie option.

Handling Telephony Links
You can dial telephony links from the web interface in connection with CTI software. The dialing handler, which will provide your CTI software for dialing by Click-to-Dial, can be defined here.

Presence Status Integration
If you use Internet Explorer® versions later than 5.5 as the browser and have installed Microsoft® Office 2003 or later, the presence status of a contact can be displayed by the web server. If you use a different browser, the status will not be displayed. The presence status will be determined and displayed through various services, such as: Microsoft® Exchange, Microsoft® Live Communications Server in combination with Microsoft® Office Communicator or Windows® Messenger.

If you only want to provide part of the contact data available from the LDAP server through the web service, you should configure a new LDAP node from Database Management and select it from there.
The web server templates can be individually adjusted. You will find the templates in the wwwroot directory in the estos MetaDirectory installation directory. You will find additional information about the template elements on the Template Parser page.
