Private, imported, and shared scenarios

To assign a security scenario to a specific service, use the Manage Services window. The Protocol and Security tab contains the interface to create and view security scenarios for individual services.

You can select a scenario in three ways:

  • Private scenario. Create a new scenario by selecting one of the built-in ones and customizing it for your Web Service.

  • Imported scenario. Use a scenario created at an earlier time. The scenario is editable, and if someone modifies the original scenario, it will not affect you.

  • Shared scenario. Load a security scenario already configured by another user from a remote location or the file system. You cannot edit this scenario's settings from the Manage Services window. If someone edits the scenario, it will affect your environment. You usually use this option after working with the product for some time and saving the scenario files.
