Setting up web services
Modules ? System ? Setup ? Web services ? Settings
Web services are business components offered to IT systems for usage. The business components may be a collection or combination of business logic, data, and processes but without a visual interface. By publishing these out in the open, other systems can retrieve and use the components to enhance their own features. The receiving system does not need to know how the web service works. It only needs to submit the required information and the web service will provide the relevant results. This automatically allows a system to communicate with other systems by publishing only selected information on a need-to-know basis.
The web services provided in Exact Synergy Enterprise ensure that data stored in Exact Synergy Enterprise can be retrieved and manipulated by other systems. This will allow you to easily extend stored data to the other systems. Thus, you will have a platform where you can integrate with your other existing systems.

How do I define the web services settings?

In the Exclude web services function rights column, check boxes may or may not be available for the web services. A check box will be available for a web service that has a default provider and its own provider or is used in the mobile application. The check box will be selected and disabled for a web service that has a default access or only uses its own authorization provider. A check box will not be available for a web service that has a default provider and is not used in the mobile application.
Click this to exit.
Click this to save the settings defined.

Exclude web services function rights
Select the required check boxes to switch the web services from using web service function points to using Exact Synergy Enterprise function points for security check purposes. You need to select the check boxes in order to be able to use any of the Exact Synergy Enterprise app.
Note: Web services that are using the Exact Synergy Enterprise function points means they are using the standard function rights validation. This is the same checking as the one used when creating, viewing, or editing the entity in Exact Synergy Enterprise. With this, users can connect to the mobile application environment without requiring the administrator to assign them the additional roles or rights in Exact Synergy Enterprise.
