Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Five attributes of deployed SOAP Web Services endpoints (name, context, class, type, and wsdl-url) were not accessible in the management tools. This was because they were not exposed to the management model by the Web Services subsystem. This issue has been fixed in this release, and the attributes can now be configured under the `webservices` subsystem using the Management CLI.

Comment 1 Brian Stansberry 2013-09-09 21:34:03 UTC
The problem is WSExtension is not registering attribute metadata for the stuff included in org.jboss.as.webservices.dmr.ModelDeploymentAspect. It registers the metrics, but not these fixed values.

Comment 11 Petr Sakař 2014-02-17 11:33:47 UTC
CLI commands:
deploy /tmp/CLIWebservicesWsdlPortIT.war


    "outcome" => "failed",
    "failure-description" => "JBAS014639: Attribute wsdl-url is not writable",
    "rolled-back" => true

Result is correct, but CLI GUI still offers write and undefine operations on this attribute, which is wrong

Comment 13 Rebecca Searls 2014-03-25 12:10:38 UTC
I consulted with Brian Stansberry and Stan Silvert on this change.
Brian speculated this might be a general problem that occurs with any
read-only attribute.  Stan confirmed it.

So in summary, this behavior is common to all read-only attributes.  There is
no satisfactory way to change the CLI to provide the behavior you've requested.  
The CLI team considers this working as designed and not a bug.

Verified as per comment 11.

New BZ 1083877 created for issue that CLI GUI offers write and undefine operations on read-only attribute
