Master Data Services Web Services API Error

In Master Data Services (MDS), I received an error when using C# code in the script task in SSIS 2012 to call the MDS web services API:

To fix this, I had to edit the web.config in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\110\Master Data Services\WebApplication:

Under ” <behavior name=”mdsWsHttpBehavior”>”


<serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled=”false” httpsGetEnabled=”false”/>


<serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled=”true” httpsGetEnabled=”false”/>

Under “<basicHttpBinding>”


<security mode=”TransportCredentialOnly”>
<transport clientCredentialType=”Windows”/>


<security mode=”TransportCredentialOnly”>
<transport clientCredentialType=”None”/>
