Adding Service Interfaces and Operations to Search FavoritesLocate this document in the navigation structure


Search Favorites is a central location in which you can store information about the search items you frequently use. When you discover service interfaces on Solution Composer systems, you can save the information about these services in the local workspace for further reference. At a later stage, you can use the enterprise services in the Search Favorites directly instead of searching for the same services again.
