How to: Create a Master Data Manager Web Application (Master Data Services)

Create a Master Data Manager Web application when you need a new Web application to associate with the Master Data Services database. You can create the Web application in a new Web site or an existing Web site in Internet Information Services (IIS) on the local computer.

When you create a new Web site in Master Data Services Configuration Manager, the root Web application is configured as the Master Data Manager Web application and the application is added to a new application pool. With this procedure, you cannot specify a virtual path and alias of the Master Data Manager Web application. If you want to specify a virtual path and alias for Master Data Manager, you must create a Web application in an existing Web site that is not already configured as a Master Data Manager Web application.

Additionally, Master Data Services Configuration Manager supports creating sites with HTTP bindings only. For more information about adding an HTTPS binding to a site that you create in Master Data Services Configuration Manager, see Next Steps for links to Internet Information Services (IIS) documentation.

To create a Master Data Manager Web application in a new Web site

  1. Open Master Data Services Configuration Manager.

  2. In the left pane, click Web Configuration.

  3. On the Web Configuration page, click Create Site.

  4. On the Create Web Site dialog box, specify information for a new Web site. For more information about the user interface (UI) options in the dialog box, see Create Web Site Dialog Box (Master Data Services Configuration Manager).

  5. Click OK.

When you create a Web application in an existing Web site in Master Data Services Configuration Manager, you can choose the virtual path and alias of the Web application. This Web application is added to a new application pool.

To create a Master Data Manager Web application in an existing Web site

  1. Open Master Data Services Configuration Manager.

  2. In the left pane, click Web Configuration.

  3. On the Web Configuration page, from the Web site drop-down list, select the Web site in which you want to create the Master Data Manager Web application.

  4. Click Create Application.

  5. On the Create Web Application dialog box, specify information for a new Web application. For more information about the user interface (UI) options in the dialog box, see Create Web Application Dialog Box (Master Data Services Configuration Manager).
