15.7.2. Consumer operations

Several operations are available from the consumer list view of the WSRP configuration portlet:
The available operations are:
  • Configure: displays the consumer details and allows user to edit them
  • Refresh: forces the consumer to retrieve the service description from the remote producer to refresh the local information (offered portlets, registration information, etc.)
  • Activate/Deactivate: activates/deactivates a consumer, governing whether it will be available to provide portlets and receive portlet invocations
  • Register/Deregister: registers/deregisters a consumer based on whether registration is required and/or acquired
  • Delete: destroys the consumer, after deregisterting it if it was registered
