- Specify the URL of the Web Services Description Language (WSDL) document of the WSRP producer (for example, http://MyServer:port/contextRoot/wsdl/wsrp_service.wsdl).
Note: If you are using WebSphere Portal as the WSRP producer, refer to Using WSRP services with WebSphere Portal -> Producer tasks -> WSRP service description in the WebSphere Portal information center.
- Enable the security option for this producer. Make sure you are familiar with the security configuration of the WSRP producer you specified. Select from the following security options:
WSRP producer does not have any security configuration.LTPA
The WSRP producer is using LTPA token for authentication. If the WSRP producer is not in the Portal server that hosts the Rich Client WSRP Enablement Portlet, you should configure single sign-on between these two Portal servers.
- For the security configuration for Portal, refer to Using WSRP services with WebSphere Portal -> Security considerations for using WSRP with WebSphere Portal in the WebSphere Portal information center.
- After configuring single sign-on for the WSRP producer server and the Portal server that hosts the Rich Client WSRP Enablement Portlet, you cannot use IP to set up other configurations to identify these servers.
WSRP producer is using Username token for authentication. If you select this option, you need to specify an available account on this Portal server in the Credential Vault portlet, using the URL in step 10 as the resource name. Note that the Credential Vault portlet will also need a "Slot Name", it is suggested to set the same name for both the "resource name" and the "slot name".
