You can use the SIS REM module to view, configure, remove, install, or replace compositions.

What are SIS compositions?

A composition describes the services to be invoked for a particular call and the order the services should be invoked.

For details, see Managing Compositions in the SIS Administration Guide.

To manage compositions:


From the SIS instance page, select Compositions.

A list of Compositions installed in the selected instance displays.



To…​ Do this:

View a composition

  • Click it.
    That composition’s details display (see Configurable Options in the SIS Administration Guide).


  • To display a dependent or dependency, click it.

  • To expand the XML window, click (show full).

Remove the selected composition

  • Click Remove.
    SIS REM module prompts you to confirm removing.

  • Click OK.
    SIS REM module removes the composition from the selected SIS instance.

Warning You can’t remove a composition that has dependents.

Configure the selected composition

  • Click Edit.
    An Edit Composition dialog box displays.

  • Make any changes to the composition details, and click Save.
    SIS REM module saves your changes.

Install a new composition

  • Click Install.
    A Choose File button displays.

  • Click the Choose File button.
    An Open dialog box displays.

  • Navigate to and select the XML file for the composition you want to install.

    Warning The XML file must adhere to the SIS Composition XML schema defined for the SIS version.

    The SIS REM module installs the composition. If that SIS instance already has a composition with the same identity, the SIS REM module asks whether you want to replace the existing XML.

Note Changes to SIS compositions do not take effect immediately. The SIS must explicitly reload its components to apply any changes.
