Under the Configuration tab of the Business Service Control the administrator can configure the following:
The tabs that will be displayed for users who have a specific user profile
Types of result view for each user profile
Customizable Taxonomies providing for user input when creating, editing or searching entities
The Configuration tab is available if both of the following conditions are satisfied:
The user belongs to a user profile that has the visible Configuration tab
The user has ConfiguratorManagerPermission to all operations (*) and all configurations (*). See Administrator's Guide, Permissions for more information on how to set up permissions.
Furthermore, administrators can customize individual pages wherever a Customize button appears.
On the page shown in Figure 43, you can define which tabs will be available for specific user profiles. The Default User Profile drop down list allows you to specify the default user profile when creating a new user account. If the checkbox Allow User to Select Profile is checked, users are allowed to select a user profile when creating a new account, later users can switch profiles.
On the page shown in Figure 44, you can configure default result views for user profiles.
On this panel, you can choose which classifications (taxonomies) are browsable. Browsable taxonomies appear on the reports tree on the Reports tab, and also show up when viewing an entity's classification details.
Each browsable classification is displayed as a node in the Reports tree, using the Display name configured on the panel. If the taxonomy classification is internally checked - meaning it has a predefined set of values - a sub-node is displayed in the Reports tree for each possible value.
For example, the selected classification systinet-com:taxonomy:service:certification represents a node Certification in the Report tree. If you click on the Certification node in the report tree, the result view will contain all entities categorized by this taxonomy. Since the systinet-com:taxonomy:service:certification is internally checked, having the value set (Certified, Pending), the Certification node will contain two subnodes (Certified and Pending) representing a report of certified and pending services.
On this panel, you can specify how many records and on how many pages searched data will appear. Component names from the Components column consist of the component name (services, endpoints, providers, interfaces, bindings) and the type of result view (common, technical, business). For example, the row with the component name servicesTechnicalResult contains page limits for search results of services listing technical service data.
On the Web Interface tab of the Business Service Control Configuration screen, you can configure URLs, contexts, directories, and other information related to the registry's interface.
URL - nonsecure registry URL
Secure URL - secure registry URL
Context - context of the Registry Control URL
JSP directory - location of JSP pages relative to REGISTRY_HOME/work/uddi
Upload directory - upload directory used for tasks such as uploading taxonomies
Maximum upload size - maximum upload size in bytes
Server session timeout - session timeout (measured in seconds)
Administrator's email - email address of the registry administrator.
URL Truncation Limit - URLs displayed in reports and result views will be truncated to number of characters specified in this field. The truncated URL will not be exactly so long as the value specified here but the URL string can be a little bit longer. The truncated URL will be displayed in the following format:<protocol><server name><truncated part ...><filename>
This tab controls which taxonomies are used in the Search, Edit or Publish pages, and how they are displayed.
To add a new taxonomy, click Add New Taxonomy at the bottom of the screen. To change how a taxonomy is currently displayed, click the Edit icon in the right-hand column.
The wizards for adding and editing a taxonomy (its representation) are similar. Here we describe the procedure for editing a taxonomy:
Click the icon in the Edit column for a taxonomy and you will be presented with a page as shown in Figure 49.
The details in the lower half of this page depend on the selection labeled Select representation:
Select mode Users select a value from a predefined set of valid values. This set can be displayed using one of the supported UI controls - checkboxes, radio buttons, listbox, etc. For checked taxonomies, the UI can fetch the valid values from the taxonomy itself - so providing values here is optional. Doing so allows you to limit users to a subset of values, and control the order in which they are displayed.
Input mode Users input a value in a text box.
Hidden value In this case it is not appropriate for the user to edit the value.
The next screen allows you to specify the pages to which this representation of the taxonomy will be added:
You can make it possible for the user to enter a value when an entity is created and/or edited, or to use the taxonomy in searches.
Click Next and you will be asked to specify where the representation appears on each additional page for which it is configured.
If there are any conflicts between the new and existing configurations, you will be asked to resolve them.. If you are adding the representation to a page where a different representation already exists then you will be asked to choose the new or existing representation.
Finally you will be presented with a summary of the additions.
Administrators can customize individual pages of the Business Service Control wherever a Customize button appears. Pages sometimes have more than one composite area, in which case each can have its own Customize button.
The Customize buttons on individual pages take precedence over the Customizable Taxonomies settings discussed above. This allows registry administrators to further customize individual pages to best meet their needs.
For example, Figure 52 shows a page with two composite areas:
The user (an administrator) has clicked the Customize button in the Business Properties area.
The result is that the Business Properties are displayed in the customization editor, whereas the Technical Properties are displayed as usual in this page.
The customization editor displays:
Visual Components in a table, one row line. In this case there are 2 components in each line but see below. One component is selected and in this case it is the label Usage;
Component Properties shows the properties of the selected component;
Under Visual Components each pair of adjacent components has a number of buttons between them. In this case there is only one set of buttons per line because there are only two components per line. The tool-tip for each button shows what it does. You can:
Swap the positions of a pair of adjacent components horizontally;
Move the component down or up, swapping it with the component below or above;
Link a pair of adjacent components together so that when they are moved up or down the are moved together. Or you can unlink components that are linked;
Some of the details under Component Properties depend on the type of component. If you click Show expert visual properties it is possible to change the number of rows or columns occupied by a component - its Height and Width. The last component on the line has Remainder of the row checked. If you check Cells instead then the row is joined with the following row to make one line. For example, in Figure 53 the first two lines have been joined into one line of 4 components.
It is possible to perform the following actions by clicking the buttons provided:
Add a new component;
Delete the selected component;
Save the design;
Reset the changes you have made;
Close the customization editor;
