A publisher assertion is a way in UDDI to associate businessEntity
structures. The publisher assertion defines a group of businessEntity
structures. Many businesses are not effectively represented by a single businessEntity.
A publisher assertion allows for associations to be formed between several
businessEntity structures. For example, a large company may have several subsidiaries
that have different descriptions but are still closely coupled and want to
make their relationships visible in UDDI registries.
In the Navigator pane, select the business entity for which you
want to manage referenced businesses.
In the Actions pane toolbar, click the Manage Publisher
Assertions icon .
On the Manage Publisher Assertions page you can add, remove, and
maintain relationships with other business entities.
Important: A business entity that is referenced
by another business entity must in turn reference that business entity in
order to make the publisher assertion public. A one-way reference is considered
an incomplete publisher assertion and is visible only to the owner of the
