Windows Authorization Manager
The web services need to have authentication specified in order for the desktop
applications to access them.
The following is an example of how to apply permissions against the Catalog web service. The
steps to secure the other web services, such as profiles, orders, and marketing, are the same.
You can also use the Grant-CS*WebServicePermissions PowerShell CmdLets to add
users to an Authorization Store. If you are using SCpbMD, then you will only be using and
securing the catalog web service.
- Start Windows, click the Start button, and search for azman.msc to
open the Authorization Manager.
- The Authorization Manager tool appears.
- Right-click the Authorization Manager node, and then click
Open Authorization Store.
- In the Open Authorization Store dialog, select XML
file, browse to
the Store. name field, choose CatalogAuthorizationStore.xml, and then
- In the Authorization Manager dialog, expand
CatalogandInventorySytem/Role Assignments, and click
- Right-click the empty pane on the right of the window, click Assign Users and
Groups, and then click From Windows and Active
- Add the name of any users and groups that will need to use the Catalog Manager or Catalog and
Inventory Schema Manager tools. At minimum, add your own user name.
- Repeat this procedure for each of the web services. If you are using SCpbMD, you do not need
to add any other users and groups.
