After creating a data service, you can configure its quality of service (QoS) operations and manage and monitor it using the dashboard. Follow the steps below to access the dashboard of a service.

  1. Log in to the management console and select Services > List under the Main menu . 
  2. The Deployed Services page appears, which lists out all deployed services. Click on a service to view its dashboard.

A typical deployed service's dashboard provides the features shown below. Some of these features may not be available for WIP services.

Service Dashboard

Service details

The Service Details panel provides the following information:

  • Service Name - Unique name of the service
  • Service Description - Briefly describes the service
  • Service Group Name - The name of the group the service belongs to. See Service Group Dashboard
  • Deployment Scope
  • Service Type  Specifies service type (for example, Axis2, Proxy, STS)

Client operations

A service's dashboard provides the following client operations:

It also lists the endpoints of a service. The service is set to two endpoints by default. Typically, the endpoint URI is of the format http://{host ip of the server}:{server port}/services/{service name}

Try this service

The Try this service link directs you to a new window to test if the service gives the desired output. The URL for invoking the TryIt tool can also be appended by concatenating the endpoint URL of your service with the following string:

  •   ?tryit : Ajax client for simple, generic interactions with the service

For more information, see Testing WSDLs.

Generate client

The Generate Client option is provided by the feature of the WSO2 feature repository. For more information, see Generate Java Code for WSDL. 

WSDL 1.1 and WSDL 2.0 

Opens XML configurations. The WSDLs describe the operations the service exposes, the structure of the XML that is sent and received by each operation, and how to communicate with the service to retrieve the XML content. By default, six different types of endpoints are deployed. Each of these endpoint types are represented by the WSDL 2.0 <endpoint> elements of the service, and by the <binding> elements that these endpoints refer to. The default six types of endpoints are as follows:

  • SOAP 1.2 over HTTP
  • SOAP 1.1 over HTTP
  • Plain old XML/REST over HTTP
  • SOAP 1.2 over HTTPS
  • SOAP 1.1 over HTTPS
  • Plain old XML/REST over HTTPS

The URLs for the WSDL files of the service can also be appended by concatenating the endpoint URL of the service with the following strings:

  • ?wsdl2 : WSDL 2.0 description of the service
  • ?wsdl : WSDL 1.1 description of the service


The Statistics panel provides statistical information about a service as follows:

  • Request Count
  • Response Count
  • Fault Count
  • Maximum Response Time
  • Minimum Response Time
  • Average Response Time

It also provides a graphical view of the system response time. For more information, see Access and Performance Statistics.
