The Service Catlogue preferences control which service catalogue instance is searched for services in the Service Catalogue perspective. These preferences can be changed by adding a new service catalogue:

  1. Select Preferences from the Taverna or File menu.
  2. Select Service Catalogue from the Preferences pop up window.
  3. Click Add Service Catalogue (you would need to fill in the full base URL of the catalogue in the pop-up dialog).
  4. Make sure it is selected in the drop-down list.
  5. Click Apply.
  6. Close the Preferences pop up window.

Base URL of the Service Catalogue to connect to

Base URL of Service Catalogue instance to connect to controls which service catalogue you are searching for services. Some institutions and groups will host their own instance of service catalogue. By default, Taverna Enterprise will try to connect to BioCatalogue at https://www.biocatalogue.org/. Taverna Biodiversity will, by default, try to connect to BiodiversityCatalogue at https://www.biodiversitycatalogue.org.

Note that both the BioCatalogue's and BiodiversityCatalogue's URLs start with https:// instead of http://.
