Next Steps

  • Programmatic access to Master Data Services web services is automatically enabled when the web application is created. To let developers access the service metadata to easily generate proxy classes for programmatic access, enable metadata publishing. For more information, see Create Master Data Manager Web Service Proxy Classes.

  • Add users and groups to Master Data Manager. If no users or groups have been granted access to Master Data Manager, you must open Master Data Manager using the Master Data Services system administrator credentials. For more information, see Administrators (Master Data Services) and Users and Groups (Master Data Services).
