Categorized Web Service Operations (Master Data Services)

 

Applies To: SQL Server 2016 Preview

The Master Data Services web service contains a complete set of operations that let you write code to control all of the features that Master Data Manager does through its user interface. The web service operations are defined by the Microsoft.MasterDataServices.IService interface and are implemented as methods in the Microsoft.MasterDataServices.ServiceClient class. This topic groups the web service operations into conceptual categories to help you understand how to use the web service API.
