In Access Manager, a service is a group of attributes that are managed together by the Access Manager console. The attributes can be just bits of related information such as an employee's name, job title, and email address. But attributes are typically used as configuration parameters for a software module such as a mail application or payroll service.
Through the Services tab, you can add and configure a number of Access Manager default services to a realm. You can add the following services:
Access Manager enforces that required attributes in service .xml files have some default values. If you have services with required attributes with no values, you need to add default values and reload the service.
Select the Services tab.
Click Add in the Services list.
Select the service you wish to add for the realm.
Configure the service by defining the realm attributes. See Configuration in the online help for a description of the service attributes.
To edit the properties of a service, click the name in the Service list.
