Chapter 5: Web Console—Web Services

Roles

EAServer’s authorization model is based on roles. Roles control access to that Web service, and are located in the Roles folder under each Web service.

You can also define roles at the Web service operation level. Establishing roles at the operation/method level gives you even greater access control of Web services resources.

You can define new roles from the Web console. See the EAServer Security Administration and Programming Guide for information about creating and installing roles in EAServer.
