Assign Groups to UDDI Services Roles

After you install and configure UDDI Services, you can assign groups to UDDI Services roles as necessary to meet the needs of your organization. By default, the UDDI Services Publisher, Coordinator, and Administrator groups are members of the Windows security group BUILTIN\Administrators. The UDDI Services User group is a member of the Windows security group BUILTIN\Users.

Information technology (IT) administrators can easily manage access to UDDI Services functions by assigning user groups to one of four roles: User, Publisher, Coordinator, or Administrator. You can assign users or groups to the following UDDI Services roles.

The User group and the Publisher group can include applications as well as people.

  • User

    Users have read-only access to UDDI Services Web service information. In an Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) domain, everyone is a User by default. Place any users, applications, or business partners who only need to search information—but do not need to add, change, or update any Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration (UDDI) data—in this group.

  • Publisher

    A Publisher is any person or application that publishes data in a site. For example, a Publisher may be a Web service that updates its access point or a developer who wants to publish a Web service to enable discovery through UDDI. When you publish data, you are the default owner of that data. Publishers can create new Web service publications or modify any of the publications that they own. The Publisher group has User rights.

  • Coordinator

    A Coordinator can query, publish, and configure data in the UDDI Services Web-based user interface (UI).

    In addition to having Publisher rights, a Coordinator can modify any data that is stored in UDDI Services, change publication ownership, import categorization schemes, and view statistical reports. Coordinators are often responsible for helping to ensure consistent and accurate publications; they can view or modify any entity, and they can correct errors. They also manage entity ownership, which includes tasks such as reassigning a publication to a new developer following the departure of the original publisher.

  • Administrator

    An Administrator can query, publish, coordinate, and administer UDDI Services. An Administrator can configure service options, manage security settings, perform backups, configure Web and database servers, and carry out other administrative tasks at the system level by using administration tools including the UDDI Services snap-in. The UDDI Services Web-based interface does not include administrative tasks. By default, all local computer and domain administrators are assigned to the Administrator role.

A local administrator has UDDI Services Administrator rights over any components that are operating on that computer, even if the local administrator has not specifically been assigned to the UDDI Services Administrator role.

The following table summarizes the tasks that each role can perform.
