When creating a new web application, you have the option to associate service applications with the
web application. You can go back in and change those settings per web application. Or you can go
to the Configure Service Application Association page and select the web application of your choice
to edit the associated service application connections (Figure 11.30). Keep in mind what you’re
actually associating are the connections, or “proxies,” not the service application itself. Web applications
associate with connections. This page can be filtered to display the web applications and their
connections (organized by group), the service applications and their proxies, or both.
WHEN IS A DEFAULT CUSTOM?
In most cases, if you are going to customize the associations for web applications, you first have to
change their group to [custom]. But on the Service Application Associations page, you can select
the default group name and actually change the service application connections available to that
group. I don’t suggest it, but in a pinch, if all your web applications are using a service application
and it’s gone crazy, you can just whack it from the default group here and remove its association
from all web applications that use that group.
When you click the link for a web application, a Configure Service Application Associations
box pops up, allowing you to keep the default group, which is all available service applications,
or choose Custom from the drop-down and pick which service applications to associate.
