Groups tab

This tab consists of two separate parts:

  • The list of web service groups on the left side of the screen,
  • The properties and members of the selected group on the right side of the screen.

List of groups grid

This grid contains:

  • Predefined groups containing official web services (cloud computing, Microsoft, etc.),
  • Custom groups, if any, meant to contain official and custom web services. Such groups are manually created by the administrator.

When you scroll over a group, a tooltip shows its properties:

  • Name: the name of the group, e.g., Microsoft,
  • Read only: indicates whether the group can be renamed or deleted. Official web service groups are always in read-only mode,
  • Members of the group: lists the web services included in the group.
