Enabling Secure Connection for Web Services: Update Bindings

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis post is part of the Enabling Secure Connection for Web Services series.

There are several configuration files which need to be amended to enable a secure connection for Web Services. The first is WSBindings.config which is, by default, located in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics\GPWebServices\ServiceConfigs.

There are three sections of this config file which need to be amended, but before making any changes, take a backup of the entire file.

The first section is the basicHttpBinding section. Replicate the BasicHttpBindingTarget binding:

  • Change the name by appending SSL
  • Change the security mode to Transport
