Web Services

The web server will provide its data through the web services. Each web service directory has its own configuration.

The Default Web Service has a special configuration for the MetaDirectory intranet address book. The other Web Service Settings permit configuration of the data sources and presentation of the results. In this manner, the web server can use different databases on various pages.

Only the Default service will be active by default. An LDAP node with the recommended search and result settings will be automatically created during the setup of the other services.

XML pages are also available in addition to HTML pages. Templates have been supplied for the following web services:

Service Name Path Description
Default /index.html Default access using web browsers
Default /communicator.html Display in the Office Communicator
