I have a WCF service that I want to consume from a DNN module. I have consumed asmx web services before from a DNN module without issues. All it required was adding a web reference to the module.

With my WCF service, I have added a service reference to the project. But in addition to that, endpoint definitions are required in the web.config file. I can add them manually for now, but how do I ensure these settings will be added to web.config of any DNN installation that this module is installed on?

Is there a different approach required for consuming WCF services from a DNN module?

All of my searches lead me to articles for creating WCF services inside DNN - could not find anything for calling WCF service from DNN module.

Thanks.

I never had any problems adding WCF services to DNN - they could be consumed by any app/mobile or portal?

Can you browse to your .SVC file? If not, what is the error?

Any reason why you are not using WebAPI?

Thanks for the reply.
Adding WCF service to my dev was not that problematic. After adding the service reference, I also had to add some config to the web.config file. I was wondering how I can ensure this on a client system. The solution I found was that I can include config in the manifest file of a module, so that it gets copied to the client system at time of installation.
I have not implemented and tested it yet, but that seems to be the answer to my question.

Hmm - I consumed them in a Mobile App (PhoneGap) so I was not using .NET for the client (Javascript/HTML) - hence I could not use a Service Reference - I just hit the service with js code.

You can add the necessary configuration to the .dnn file: 

1) Be carefull that you do not step on another service though!

2) There can be only one System.ServiceModel section:

3) My example WILL step on other services (so this needs to be modified to not do so.
