When creating or viewing details about a UDDI registry, the UDDI Registry Properties dialog is displayed. This dialog lets you configure a UDDI registry to be recognized by the
API Gateway
.
To access the properties for a UDDI registry
:
  1. Run the Manage UDDI Registries task.
  2. Select a registry from the list and then click [Properties]. You can also click [
    Create
    ] to enter the properties for a new UDDI registry. The UDDI Registries Properties appear. 
  3. Configure the properties as follows:
    Setting
    Description
    UDDI Registry Name
    Enter a name to identify the UDDI registry. This name must be unique.
    [
    Enabled
    ]
    Select this check box to enable the UDDI registry. Clear the check box to disable the registry.
    A disabled registry will not appear in searches where the UDDI registry serves as the "source" for an entity (for example, when searching for a UDDI registry from the Publish SOAP Web Service Wizard). However, a disabled registry will still appear in the Publish to UDDI Settings dialog and the [
    UDDI
    ] tab under Service Properties. If the settings in these dialogs need to be changed for a disabled registry, it will not be possible until the registry is re-enabled.
    UDDI Registry Type
    Select the type of UDDI registry from the drop-down list. If you are not using one of the listed registry types, select Generic.
    If the 'Generic' UDDI registry type is chosen, certain features may not be available (for example, the collection of metrics because the
    API Gateway
    will have no prior knowledge of the registry).
    Base URL
    Enter the base URL for the UDDI registry. The Policy Manager will automatically copy this URL to all the other URL fields by default. The Base URL is required.
    Security URL
    Inquiry  URL
    Publish URL
    Subscription URL
    These URLs are automatically populated when the Base URL is first entered. If any of these URLs differ from the Base, edit as necessary. If the 'Generic' UDDI registry type was selected, you must manually complete each field.
    You can quickly revert all these URLs back to the Base by clicking [
    Reset URLs to Base URL
    ].
    [Reset URLs to Base URL]
    Click this to update the URL fields with the Base URL. If the UDDI registry type is not 'Generic', then the specific relative parts of the URL is also auto populated.
    [Use Client Authentication]
    Select this check box to present a certificate to the server during the SSL handshake, if one is requested. Clear this check box to never present a certificate, even if one is requested. Note that access may be denied in this case.
    [Keystore]
    From the drop-down list, select the keystore from which to retrieve the certificate. This is available only if the Use Client Authentication check box is selected.
    UDDI Registry Account
    Enter the Username and Password to access the UDDI registry.
    Although you may enter the actual password here, it is recommended that you use a secure password reference instead. To do this, define your password using the Manage Stored Passwords task and then reference it here using the ${secpass.<name>.plaintext} context variable.
    [Metrics Enabled]
    Select this check box to enable the collection of metrics data. This is available only for the UDDI registry type "CentraSite ActiveSOA".
    Metrics Publish Frequency
    The interval in minutes between successive publications of metrics data.
    [Monitoring Enabled]
    This setting allows monitoring to be enabled or disabled at a UDDI registry level. Monitoring may be enabled or disabled for Individual published services, but the Monitoring Enabled check box affects all services using this UDDI registry.
    The Monitoring Enabled check box is available only when a Subscription URL is supplied.
    [Subscribe for notification]
    When monitoring is enabled, select this option to subscribe to be notified about changes to the UDDI. This is a global setting that affects how the UDDI is monitored. When this option is selected, the UDDI registry will notify the
    API Gateway
    about changes via the UDDI notification internal service. This is an asynchronous notification from UDDI.
    To enable monitoring by subscription, the following must be done:
    1. A "UDDI Notification" internal service has been published to the
      API Gateway
      .
    2. The "UDDI Notification" internal service is published to the UDDI registry.
    If the
    API Gateway
    being published contains only HTTPS endpoints, ensure that the UDDI registry to which you are publishing has been configured to trust the
    API Gateway
    SSL certificate.
    When subscribing to receive notifications, a WSDL document may need to be downloaded. The maximum size of this document is controlled by the wsdlDownload.maxSize  cluster property.
    [Poll for notifications]
    When monitoring is enabled, select this option to automatically check the UDDI for notifications after a specified time period.
    When polling for notifications, a WSDL document may need to be downloaded. The maximum size of this document is controlled by the wsdlDownload.maxSize  cluster property.
    Frequency
    If [
    Polling for notifications
    ] was selected, specify the how frequently to check for notifications. The default is every 10 minutes.
    [Test UDDI Connection]
    Click this button to test the connection to the UDDI Registry. If credentials were supplied, they will be used when trying to connect to the registry, otherwise the connection attempt will use no credentials.
    The test involves looking up a well known UDDI tModelKey: uddi:uddi.org:specification:v3_policy, which also validates that the registry is a V3 registry.
    Security Zone
    Optionally choose a security zone. To remove this entity from a security zone (security role permitting), choose "No security zone".
    For more information about security zones, see Understand Security Zones.
    This control is hidden if either: (a) no security zones have been defined, or (b) you do not have Read access to any security zone (regardless of whether you have Read access to entities inside the zones).
  4. Click [
    OK]
     when done.
If you change monitoring methods (for example, from monitoring to polling or vice versa) or disable/enable monitoring, this will cause an update of each service that is monitoring a Business Service in the modified UDDI registry.
