HowTo: change the metadata settings of web services
The GetCapabilities response of an OGC compliant web service contains a <Service> section. How to change the contents of this metadata section will be explained on this page. A speciality of deegree 3 is that changing the metadata will have effect on all the web services of this workspace.
Services console login: "deegree" (without the quote signs) is the default password.
2. Change metadata
Click on the web services link.
Click on the link Edit metadata to edit the metadata section of the GetCapabilities response of all running services at once.
You are now able to edit the text of the configuration xml file:
The top line informs you about the name of the file you are about to change. For convenience sake you might want to click the fullscreen button indicated in the image.
Update the elements of <ServiceProvider> to your own organisation, name, position, and contact details.
Click the Save link. The editor window will close and the Reload link in the top left corner will turn red.
Click the Reload link to permanently store the changes in your configuration.
3. Check success
Check the Capabilities link of either service to see the applied changes in the GetCapabilities response.
4. What next ?
The service metadata is there already. Now we want a new feature store for our WFS or WMS! The logical follow-up will be handled in other tutorials and teach you how to add a shape feature store, how to add a SimpleSQL feature store or how to add a PostGIS feature store.
