Important information

When creating credentials for transport security over the HTTP(S) Gateway agent, the user of the virtual service must be a valid Windows account. This Windows account can be one of the following:

  • A domain account. This is supported automatically.
  • A local account. If it does not already exist, you must create a local Windows account on the machine hosting the Service Virtualization Designer or standalone server. You must use the same user name and password.
