Attribute Description

None.

Parent Elements

Element Description

<defaultOperation> Element

Defines the default policy to apply for SOAP messages that match the criteria in the enclosing <endpoint> Element element.

<operation> Element

Defines the policy for SOAP messages sent to or received by a specific Web service method at an endpoint.

The enclosing <operation> Element element can contain zero or more <request> elements. Each <request> element specifies the policy ID to apply to requests received for the operation.

In order for a SOAP message to have the policy applied to it, the policy attribute must match the wsu:Id attribute of the <Policy> Element (WSE for Microsoft .NET) (1) element, the SOAP action must match the requestAction attribute of the <operation> element, and the WS-Addressing <to> element must match the uri attribute of the <endpoint> Element element.

The following code example defines a policy assertion named signed-body-x509 that requires the digital signing of the <Body> element, timestamp header, and all addressing headers by an X509SecurityToken. The policy file then specifies that SOAP messages adhere to the policy assertion if they are sent to the http://www.cohowinery.com/Service1.asmx endpoint with a SOAP action of http://www.cohowinery.com/AddNumbers.

Note:
This code example is designed to demonstrate WSE features and is not intended for production use.
