Web Configuration Reference (Master Data Services)

Master Data Services uses a Web.config file to contain the configuration settings that enable Internet Information Services (IIS) to host the Master Data Manager Web application and the Web service. This Web.config file is located in the WebApplication folder of the Master Data Services installation path. For more information about the path and permissions, see Folder and File Permissions (Master Data Services).

The Web.config file contains a custom Master Data Services element, <masterDataServices>, in addition to standard IIS, .NET Framework, ASP.NET, and Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) configuration elements. The following table describes the elements included in the Web.config file.
