Last modified: April 19, 2010

Applies to: SharePoint Server 2010

In the case of a Web service, the LobSystem instance defines additional connection and authentication parameters that the Business Data Connectivity (BDC) service will use. For a detailed list of LobSystemInstance properties, see BDC Custom Properties.

Add the following XML as a child of the LobSystem element (after the AccessControlList element).

<LobSystemInstances>
  <LobSystemInstance Name="http://air-mail/WSOrders2010/service.asmx?wsdl">
    <Properties>
      <Property Name="WcfAuthenticationMode" 
                Type="System.String">PassThrough</Property>
      <Property Name="WcfEndpointAddress" 
                Type="System.String">http://air-mail/WSOrders2010/service.asmx
      </Property>
      <Property Name="ShowInSearchUI" Type="System.String"></Property>
    </Properties>
  </LobSystemInstance>
</LobSystemInstances>
